Employee stress and fatigue

It’s not just this winter weather that has employees moving more slowly. Across the country, employees are reporting feeling more fatigued, stressed, burnt out, and even depressed – more so than in years past. The reason? According to Workforce.com, “the major culprits are reduced head count, lack of boundaries between home life and work, second jobs, and a culture of ‘wanting to do it all.’”

In her article “The Yawning of a New Era,” author Michelle Rafter discusses how employees are being asked to do more with less and how it’s slowly dragging employees down. Unfortunately for employers, many employees are afraid to express being over-worked. After all, with so many people out of work, they’re just happy to have a job.

The TLNT blog has written “How Smart Employers are Dealing with Employee Stress” which will help you put together a plan to help combat the workplace doldrums this winter. To read those recommendations, click here.
