28 September 2021 –A recent study found that 76% of staff experience burnout on the job at least sometimes, drastically reducing productivity.* It’s a big concern for executives who fear losing their best team members. Understanding the causes of burnout and how to prevent it has become a top priority. dtac Business recommends Business Activity Management System (BAMS) to help executives stay on top of both remote and in-office staff activities to ensure smooth operations and customer engagement from anywhere, anytime.

3 Tips to Prevent Employee Burnout:

1.Allocate the amount of work per employee appropriately

Allocating an appropriate amount of work for each employee is always important, but many companies often find themselves in situations where some employees are overloaded. Work overload results in reduced work quality and employee efficiency. Executives need to off-load work from overloaded staff and allocate it to other staff after  verifying the new staff can handle the added work. This will prevent issues later and in the end, your customers will also benefit.

2.Monitor staff activity closely

After allocating appropriate workloads, team activity should be monitored with the employee’s well-being in mind. Close, consistent, and continuous supervision of staff activity not only helps prevent staff burnout, but also ensures work quality. BAMS’ efficiency in easily tracking all team member activity from a central web-based platform protects the executive from burnout, as well.

3.Fully support the employee in their work

By fully supporting staff in their work activities, timely and efficient work practices are created. This also serves as a deterrent to employee burn-out. Ways to support staff include:

  • Create a good work environment, which includes being approachable so that team members do not hesitate to come to their supervisor for guidance and opinions.
  • Give sincere and direct comments on work, so staff can use them in the way they are intended. Provide clear perspectives, ideas, and guidelines for your staff.
  • Give consistent, motivating encouragement to your staff.

Working from Home should embrace current technology to improve productivity and eliminate issues that can bog down and frustrate staff – like unstable connectivity, causing interruptions and restarts during meetings. Lack of suitable productivity software can also be an issue and contribute to your staff’s unproductive stress.
