Workplace Burnout…An old problem with a new face!
Are you feeling extremely overwhelmed lately? If so, you may be suffering from BURNOUT!
Burnout has always been around, but our fast-paced, digitally distracted lifestyles have amplified the problem. “We’re bombarded by technology and over-information. For Leaders and Managers In the workplace, it has become the norm to think, ‘I have to be on call whenever I’m not sleeping.”
That may explain why the average full-time employee works an hour more per day now (or more) than they did a decade ago, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ American Time Use Survey. And, a new study shows you don’t even need to be working in your off-hours to feel strain. The mere expectation to be available can cause anxiety.
When burnout hits, you can’t just leave it at the office. People who feel burned out at work find their home life is more likely to suffer too. This may be because when jobs get more demanding, people put more time and resources into them, often at the expense of their private lives.
Doubling down on work might sound like it benefits employers, but eventually the bubble bursts. An infographic from Eastern Kentucky University shows companies spend about $300 billion annually for health care and missed work days as a result of workplace stress. Which is why it’s crucial to take steps to prevent – or counter – burnout.
