Worker burnout has always been an issue but never more so than this past year. Looking ahead, employers still have this issue on their radar:
- 69% of remote employees report having burnout symptoms. A fairly new but common problem, especially among offsite workers, is Zoom, or videoconferencing, fatigue.
- Searches for terms such as “signs of burnout” have increased by 24% throughout 2020.
- About 76% of employees experience burnout on the job at least sometimes.
At least one study suggests that if management invests time and effort in expressing gratitude to workers, this can boost morale and engagement.
