Help Your Employees Prevent Burnout




Burnout is the number one cause of workers in the US quitting their jobs. In 2023, 40% of workers left their jobs feeling overwhelmed and overworked.


Although most people indeed feel burnt out from their jobs, it is oftentimes avoidable. Continue reading for tips on how to prevent your employees from experiencing burnout.


Prioritize a Healthy Work-Life Balance

Have an understanding that people work to live, not live to work. With that being said, be considerate of the fact that your employees have a life outside of work that they probably think is important (and so should you)!


There should be clear boundaries in place. Once those boundaries have been crossed, you can expect your employees to become disgruntled and worst case, quit.


Here are some suggestions:

  • Respect time off

  • Provide a competitive PTO policy

  • Try to be flexible

  • Model balance yourself



Allow for More Breaks

Encourage employees to take regular breaks throughout the day to avoid prolonged periods of intense work. Short breaks can enhance productivity and creativity. Consider creating a break-friendly culture by providing comfortable break areas and promoting activities like walking meetings or mindfulness sessions.



Provide Quiet Work Areas

Noise pollution can cause overstimulation and stress for some employees.


Set up work areas for employees to have a break from the hustle and bustle. The silence helps with relaxation, mental rejuvenation, and increased productivity.



Conclusion

Preventing employee burnout requires an approach that prioritizes mental health and work-life balance. When these needs are met, your employees will feel more valued and equipped to perform at their best!
