Burn out. Ready to quit. Waiting to be fired. We’ve all been there, experiencing a feeling of utter exhaustion and lack of motivation. If we’ve been there, we know our employees have been there.

Reducing burnout is not easily done. It often takes dedicated action by both individuals and the organization at large. Ask yourself the following questions to see if an employee fatigue is an issue in your office.
1. Does your company culture encourage self-care?
Work is not the most important factor in life. A healthy work-life balance is essential to creating harmonious and engaged staff. Identify areas of high tension and encourage various methods of stress relief.
2. How well does your staff communicate?
Empathy is only created through open ears and open minds. Creating an atmosphere of listening and compassion can go a long way towards bettering communication. Ask for feedback consistently and don’t shy away from conflict.
3. Do you talk about burnout?
