No organization wants to burn out its employees. And yet, according to new research, companies’ efforts to prevent prolonged stress among their staffs are falling short.
A new survey finds that 77% of workers have experienced burnout. What can organizations do about it? Encourage real weekends and holidays so employees can rest and recharge. Expand wellness benefits to include stress management training and “mental health” days. And create a culture where contributions are recognized and gratitude is freely expressed.
