Supervision, check-ins, whatever you call them, make sure that you build them into a regular schedule for your staff. Regular one-to-ones have significant benefits for employers and employees because in addition to monitoring the actual work, they help build mutual trust and will also help identify issues early, so employees can get the support they need. Managers can use these meetings to help staff manage their workloads – by ensuring work is clearly defined, by communicating expectations clearly, and by agreeing reasonable deadlines. 


Top Tip: make sure your supervision and appraisal agendas include a question about mental wellbeing.
