What is Employee Burnout?

0 min read

Employee burnout occurs when an employee is so tired and overwrought with their job that they give up. Burnt-out employees tend to lack engagement and excitement. As an employer, you want your employees to remain bright and active, not burnt out.

There are several ways to prevent employee burnout. Pay attention to what your employees do. If their tasks or hours are too demanding, you may want to find a way to reduce their burden before they lose all their energy. Similarly, you want to keep on top of office culture and interpersonal issues, as those can also contribute to tension and burnout. With the right blend of observation, communication, support – and maybe some free doughnuts once in a while – you can sidestep employee burnout and keep your employees engaged and energetic.
