    The North Bay Business Journal recently put on their 2019 Heath Care Conference which highlighted physician burnout. An alarming trend in the medical community but, unfortunately, job burnout is not isolated to just the medical field. A study done by Gallup of nearly 7,500 full- time employees found that roughly two-thirds of full-time workers experience job burnout. The study also found that burned out employees are 63% more likely to take a sick day and 2.6 times as likely to be actively seeking a different job. Employee burnout that goes unaddressed will impact both individual and organizational performance. Here are some ways employers can identify employee burnout:

    • Disengagement
    • Decreased productivity or quality of work
    • Increased absenteeism
    • Cynicism

    Some Ways to handle employee burnout

    • Try and get the employee to open up
      -Talking to the employee experiencing burnout will give you (the employer) a better idea of what the employee is experiencing and how you can help them.
    • Allow the employee to take another position temporarily-Some people need a change of scenery. I have personally experienced this where I worked in another department for a while just for change of pace, different job and seeing different faces and location.
    • Encourage PTO

    As stated above, some people need a change of scenery. Studies have shown that taking time away from the job can have physical and psychological health benefits. Time away has shown to lower stress and lessen the risk of heart disease.
