A survey by Visier found that 89% of employees experienced burnout in the past year. The primary factors that contributed were workload (being asked to do more work, faster, work-life balance), culture (toxic workplace, micromanagement, lack of support from managers or co-workers), and world events (COVID-19 pandemic, police brutality, climate change).
- Activities we relied on for relief from every day stress and anxiety are no longer available to us might also explain the higher burnout.
- Stress and anxiety are cumulative. For example, the pandemic is not separate from work stress—it all accumulates.
- Half of Millennials and Gen Z would consider quitting if employers don’t allow remote work
