Burning the candle: Preventing workplace burnout e-guide

Not all stress is equal. In fact, a little bit of stress in the workplace is beneficial to all of us, boosting our ability to forge ahead, and aiding in the generation of novel ideas. However, chronic and persistent stress that hasn’t been managed can easily lead to burnout. In fact, in May 2019, “burnout” was added to the World Health Organisation’s ICD-11 as an official diagnosis.

With the state of the world in pandemic, the risk for workplace burnout has risen significantly. Burned out employees aren’t difficult to identify. Exhaustion, cynicism, reduced professional efficacy, and absenteeism are the most common symptoms.

Burnout is detrimental to both employer and employee:

  • It leads to decreased productivity and poor work culture.
  • Burned out employees are more likely to take sick leave or look for another job, which increases turnover, creating new costs to hire and onboard fresh talent.

Based on Robert Walters survey, the following are some of the key statistics that we found out.

  1. 82% of professionals have suffered from workplace burnout in the past
  2. 47% of managers believe their employees may be at risk of burnout
  3. 61% of professionals believe wellness policies are important but 34% said their companies only offer what is required by law
  4. 65% of professionals would like to give their managers anonymous feedback but 46% of employers said they ‘rarely’ give employees this option
