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.
