Managing workplace burnout

In every conversation I am having about the current challenges people are experiencing, everyone is citing unmanageable workloads and it’s causing people to hit their breaking points.

In the Microsoft 2022 Work Trend Index (see link below), the suggestions they give to solve issues around burnout in a more upstream manner are:

🌼   Mental health awareness

🌼   A focus on increasing fairness

🌼   Hybrid offerings and flexible hours

🌼   More active listening

🌼   Real-time feedback, and

🌼   Personalizing communication

Burnout cannot be avoided or ‘cured’ by individuals alone. It is not the sole responsibility of employees.

Under Australian Work Health and Safety laws organisations must ensure the health and safety of their workers.

Leadership teams are required to prioritise this and ensure that the organisation’s current work expectations are not causing people to hit breaking point.

If you would like to have a conversation about RUOK? day and/or Mental Health Month, please reach out for a conversation so we can make an appropriate plan. We don’t want your team members hitting breaking point and/or looking for other companies who prioritise these important initiatives.
