Top tips to deal with feeling overwhelmed at work

Mark Flinders, financial services expert at PA Consulting Group, comments in an article by Anna Devine on dealing with feeling overwhelmed at work. 

Mark says: “Many of us like to feel needed and that makes it harder to switch off.”

Mr Flinders says that knowing when something needs to be done brilliantly or “when 80 per cent is good enough can really help people manage their workloads.” He continues, “Giving people the confidence to control their own workloads is what makes the difference.”

On personal commitments, Mark says fixed deadlines for regulation just around the corner are making workloads more difficult. Implementation teams are particularly “stretched.”

However, Mark continues, if the demand for extra work is “ongoing and relentless” then ultimately people will gravitate elsewhere.
