How to Address Workforce Burnout?
Today with nearly two-thirds of employees stating that burnout has worsened in the pandemic, leaders and entire organizations, have to take pre-emptive action to keep their workforce happy. This includes prioritizing mental health, more vacation time, flexible schedules, higher pay, more insurance and health coverage, and a more transparent and open working environment; among others. These measures also include skills training to fill in the right roles and keep up with the constantly changing global demands.
Burnout is not just about the workplace or workload; it’s about the culture, the people, inclusion, opportunity to excel and contribute, effective management and so much more. Leaders today need to do a better job of understanding their employees and communicating openly and effectively if they want their business to continue functioning and growing.
