Do you have a sneaking suspicion that your team is burning out?

Are the sick days mounting up? Attitudes deteriorating? Work quality declining? Well, here’s the first thing you should know: burnout is about your workplace, not your people. And here’s the second thing: you’re far from alone. According to a recent CNBC poll, work-related burnout is at an all-time high; 69% of workers are reporting symptoms of burnout.

We tend to consider burnout as an individual problem, solvable through “saying no”, practicing yoga, and breathing deeply. As a result, our self-help to-do lists are endless. However, mounting evidence shows that applying individual band-aid solutions to this rapidly evolving workplace phenomenon is only making things worse.

Here are 4 Proven Strategies for preventing burnout. Boost Productivity, performance, morale, and growth.

Prevent Burnout

Did you know that the World Health Organization now recognizes burnout as an “occupational phenomenon”? This formally shifts the responsibility for the problem from the individual to the organization. Creating a healthy workplace culture that values work-life balance is the answer. Leaders, it’s now on you to construct a burnout prevention strategy. Fortunately, you have this guide to creating a lower-stress workplace to prevent burnout!

1. Adjust Workloads

Did you know that adopting remote work settings has lengthened the average workday by 48.5 minutes? However, these longer days are clearly not sustainable. Redistribute the workload and check in with your employees to ensure they aren’t working longer days than they should.

2. Allow More Flexibility

Shift focus to results and away from who is logged on and working at least eight hours each day. For some employees, productivity and engagement skyrockets outside the traditional 9-5 schedule. In fact, you could see an increase in productivity by 10% if you allow your team flexibility in their schedules.

3. Start conversations, get feedback

Ask your employees how you can help relieve their work stress. If you don’t let them know that you’re there to help, they might not come to you on their own.

3. Team Building Experiences

Team building is one of the best ways to boost your team and prevent burnout. Getting everyone out of the office for the day provides a break from routines and daily stressors, creates connections, and builds a culture of fun.

Harness the Power of Play

Finally, here are a few more thoughts regarding strategy #4. To pull off a team-building event that actually works, you have to ensure that it really, truly is an opportunity to play. When we incorporate fun, delight, and intrigue into the workday, we give ourselves a chance to recharge and return to our work refreshed. So, what are some great team-building activities in Vancouver?
