5 Tips for Helping Employees That Are Burned Out

Sometimes managers can see their employees unmotivated, exhausted, frustrated, and even rude or sarcastic. The workers tend to be coming late at their workplaces, the quality of their performance is poor, and they are overall unproductive. These may be true signs of burnout.

The sad truth is that employee burnout is a quite common phenomenon. Studies have shown that over 75% of employees have this experience now and then, and almost 30% feel this way permanently. It’s not only harmful to their physical and mental health but to the business as well.

Some people may think that employees experience burnouts only in case they are overloaded or get poor salaries. It’s a common myth. Actually, there is an infinite number of other reasons for such a state. Here are some of them: 
  • The workers may feel underestimated and unappreciated
  • They may feel incompetent and not recognize their contribution to the business
  • The employees have work expectations that are too high or unclear
  • The work is too monotonous or the working environment is too depressing
  • The workers don’t see any perspective for career growth
  • High level of stress Low level of engagement
Once you have identified the problem, you have something to work on. However, some tips are overall effective and will work in any case.
