Preventing Workplace Burnout

The transition to remote working, juggling childcare and work responsibilities and financial constrictions have all contributed to what has been one of the most challenging times in America history.

Trying to balance all of these demands has left employees fatigued and overworked, which is the perfect concoction for burnout. So what can business leaders do to prevent the potential for burnout? 

The first step is to accept that the risk is real. While working from home has come with its own set of perks, studies have found that many professionals are taking on bigger workloads now.

Reconfiguring the company’s culture will be crucial. When dealing with a distributed workforce, the sense of camaraderie can suffer, so trying to keep workers engaged can help build up the company’s community.

Much of work-related stress has derived from the fear of slow career growth. In fact, a report from ServiceNow found that 31% of respondents felt that remote working has hindered opportunities for career progression.

By guiding employees and helping them identify growth plans, leaders can help them find areas of improvement and give them a greater sense of purpose.

Every employee is facing their own struggles, so leading with a hefty dose of empathy will be essential to create a healthy work environment. Using coaching methods, managers can learn how to be more empathetic and understanding to each individual employees’ challenges.
