Burn out happens to almost anyone who works. This is the time when motivation takes a major dip, when frustration is prevalent and when productivity slacks. Job burnout is a real problem in some industries. Fortunately, there are some steps to take to avoid getting it or to nip it in the bud.
A recent survey found that people who are self-employed are less likely to suffer from the symptoms of job burnout out than those who worked for someone else. Also, part-time employees feel less burnout than full-time employees. For those who feel burnout out in the current jobs, the Enterprises TV show has some suggestions which might be helpful.
Give workers more autonomy in their jobs.
Supervisors, managers and CEOs should make time to thank employees from time to time. One of the main factors in job burnout is not feeling appreciated or respected.
If pay raises are not in the budget, find another way to compensate for loyalty, longevity and good work such as offering flex time or work from home days.
The Enterprises TV show also notes that workers who feel burnout out may want to take more time off. But this does not necessarily mean the stress and frustration will abate. The best cure for job burnout is to define what is causing it and try to change it. In some cases, there may no other answer than to leave the job and find one which is more suitable.
