Stress and burnout are on the rise. There is little doubt that employee burnout is a symptom of a modern workplace that is increasingly fast-paced, complex and demanding more of employees. Technology — especially mobile technology — has blurred the lines between home life and work life. Flexibility is now the watchword.
Studies prove the higher the stress of an employee, the less likely they are to perform at their peak capacity. We’ve all been there, the stress of work can create a black-hole effect, leaving us diving deeper and deeper into work as our anxieties rise.
The hard organizational cost of burnout is substantial: Burned-out employees are 63% more likely to take a sick day and 2.6 times as likely to be actively seeking a different job. And even if they stay, they are half as likely to discuss how to approach performance goals with their manager.
In short, employee burnout can trigger a downward spiral in individual and organizational performance.
Even in the wake of the self-care trend, most employees will have a hard time making healthy lifestyle changes at work unless motivated and encouraged by their employer.
