What is burnout?
Burnout describes an occupational phenomenon triggered by chronic work stress that hasn't been successfully managed. Those affected suffer from severe physical and psychological exhaustion and no longer feel they are capable of doing their job. They're no longer able to maintain friendships or hobbies in their private lives and develop a cynical attitude towards work. In severe cases, burnout symptoms are accompanied by psychological or psychosomatic illnesses. Several factors in the workplace further exacerbate burnout. These include high workloads, a lack of recognition, poor teamwork and workplace inequity. Companies need to take action to reduce the chances of burnout and help employees who are already affected.
Burnout is a corporate issue
Burnout is not a result of personal failure. -- it's related to a toxic work environment. This is why companies need to take responsibility and action. Redesigning the workplace and changing the corporate culture are important steps in preventing burnout. When employees have the opportunity to reduce stress, feel they are important and valued and have the ability to organize their free time, they become more resilient and less susceptible to burnout. They also take fewer sick days, work more efficiently and contribute to company performance.
The Role COVID-19 and remote work play in burnout
The pandemic has seen many companies introduce remote work. But companies often expect more from employees who work from home. Constant availability even outside working hours, shortened breaks or even unpaid overtime often go hand in hand with remote work. In addition, the boundary between private and professional life is disappearing, leaving hardly any room for employees to switch off from work and relax. This drastically increases the chances of burnout.
Companies have to take responsibility and support employees who work from home. Regulated hours of and availability, improved communication and optimized flows of information are already a step toward facilitating work at home.
