When Do I Tell My Boss I Need Extra Help?
Posted

Deadlines that require overtime are a natural part of business. But, the continual need for extensions can result in unhealthy work conditions.  Watch for the warning signs and notify your employer before you burnout:

  • Are you finding yourself continually pulled away from primary tasks? Make sure you have sufficient hours to complete your core workload.
  • Is stress causing you to take more sick time?  You may be overworked if you find yourself increasingly visiting the doctor or staying home.
  • Have you accumulated an exorbitant amount of sick time? Avoid playing the martyr. You should not feel you’re the only person qualified to complete your work.
  • Do you find yourself uninterested in making improvements?  You might be lacking breathing room to go above and beyond your routine tasks.
