Burnout Prevention Strategies

By 2023 Gen Z is expected to make up around 30% of the workforce. However, not unlike the Millennial Generation, Gen Z workers are already reporting high levels of burnout.

A recent survey revealed that 46% of Gen Z staff felt that they were constantly stressed out and anxious. So, what is causing Millennial and Gen Z workers to struggle with burnout?

One of the main culprits seems to be a lack of a proper work-life balance. Gen Z employees value flexibility and the option to work remotely. However, hybrid or remote work means many workers are missing out on some of the social aspects of working in the office: finding friends, potential mates, and creating meaningful connections.

Moreover, hybrid and remote employees often find themselves working at late hours, attending calls outside of work hours, and working on weekends to meet their quota.

So, an excelent strategy to reduce employee burnout as a small business owner is to promote a healthy work-life balance and set boundaries regarding working hours and workloads.
