According to a survey from Korn Ferry, over 7,000 American professionals last May showed 73 percent of them were already feeling burned-out, and surprising that was 10 more months of the pandemic. You read that correctly. 73 percent of those surveyed were already feeling the effects of burnout 2 months into the pandemic! Well, what can employers do to help their employees cope with stress? This becomes especially important as the pandemic drags on.
It should come as no surprise that employees are taking less time off because of the pandemic just to keep their employers happy. Zapier found that nearly 40 percent of knowledge workers had canceled or shortened their time off in the past year due to short staffing and can’t take a true vacation.
What are you doing to keep your brain straight and get balanced without vacations or even a mental health day?
