Ignore employee burnout at your own peril

Burnout at work is a real problem, and it has intensified during the long stretch of the pandemic.

In survey responses gathered by Energage from thousands of employees over recent months, 39% said they often felt overwhelmed at work. Even more worrisome, only 64% said they felt their company cared about burnout.

And we’re not talking about run-of-the-mill workplaces. Many of these employees work for Top Workplaces. “There’s a lot of room for improvement,” said Greg Barnett, chief people scientist at Energage.

While burnout is not a new concept, the pandemic has turned up the stress on workers. It has presented new challenges and high expectations. For many, remote work blurred the boundaries between work time and personal time. Think of people working remotely while also facing childcare issues or elder care issues.
