Thank you to everyone who joined our tweet chat last week!

KronosTwitterChatThe advisory board here at The Workforce Institute recently unveiled their top 5 workplace trends for 2017.

But the board has more to say. In addition to their top five predictions, they have a few more we haven't released yet. We all plan to talk about them - along with some additional industry influencers - on Twitter next week.

Please join us on Tuesday, January 10th at 12 PM ET to chat about all things 2017, and how we think this year will affect the workplace. You can simply join the chat by following @KronosInc (our host) on Twitter, and the hashtag #KronosChat. To prepare you for the chat, all of the questions we plan to ask are below:

Q1: Employee experience = big focus in 2017. Which benefits & perks will matter most to employees?

Q2: With tech becoming widely used in the workplace, how can people managers strengthen personal relationships with their employees?

Q3: Today's talent expects instant feedback vs one annual assessment. What are managers doing to address this preference?

Q4: Big data has left many orgs drowning in metrics. How can businesses effectively use analytics - w/o getting overwhelmed?

Q5: Employees have more job choices in 2017 due to a recovering economy. How can leaders effectively retain their top performers?

Q6: 2017 = the year of the middle manager. How can orgs develop their people managers; many of whom are managing for 1st time?

Q7: Legislative & economic uncertainty currently reigns supreme. How can HR remain agile & compliant in such a time of unrest?

Q8: Any predictions you'd add to our 2017 list?

We hope to see you there!

The following guest post was written by Jenn Ardery, a Senior Product Marketing Manager at Kronos. Thanks, Jenn!

Employee burnout, that state in which individuals feel overwhelmed, at their wits' end, and unsure where to turn, is becoming a serious issue for organizations. According to Aptitude Research Partners' Study, organizations that have above average rates of employee burnout are 66% more likely to lose top performers than their competitors.

An organization's success depends on retaining an engaged, skilled, and productive workforce. But with so many variables that can influence engagement efforts and retention rates, how do you know where to focus your energy?

Organizations should rethink how Workforce Management (WFM) and Human Capital Management (HCM) processes and tools impact employees and give them choices that help avoid burnout before it's too late.

Please join us on Wednesday, August 3rd at 12 PM ET to chat about how your organization is impacted by burnout and to learn ways to resolve it.  Kronos Inc. (@KronosInc) will announce the Tweet Chat by asking:

Q1: When thinking about employee burnout, what is the first thing that comes to mind?

Q2: 81% of US salaried employees work outside their standard work hours. Is the 40-hour work week a thing of the past? Why?

Q3: A 2015 @Glassdoor survey found that US employees only use 51% of their eligible paid vacation time. Why do you think that is?

Q4: 75% perceive employee absences as impacting productivity/revenue. How do absences impact burnout?

Q5: Technology is changing our workplace. How can it help us in terms of employee fatigue/burnout?

Q6: Data is crucial in helping to ID issues. What data do you find most helpful in aiding to prevent employee fatigue/burnout?

Q7: How and how much do you think burnout affects retention?

Q8: How can organizations create a culture of awareness around employee burnout and promote work/life balance?

Q9: Why is preventing employee burnout good for business?

Q10: What are some effective ways to prevent employees from burning out?
