Carry out a stress audit. Look at recent exit interview data, illness and absence statistics, and staff turnover records to help you pinpoint the ways that stress is affecting your staffers. High levels of turnover, illness and absenteeism are usually signs of stress.

If your stress audit indicates that employees are feeling overwhelmed or burned out, set aside time to talk with them about how they would describe the stress level in your department—and what they feel are the likely causes.
