Statistically, about 40$ of all workers during COVID-19 have reported burnout during the pandemic (https://www.benefitnews.com/news/how-employers-can-prevent-growing-rates-of-burnout-during-covid-19) Follow these tips below to prevent employee burnout during COVID-19:

Provide mental health opportunities

Provide your employees with opportunities to address mental health- including encouraging employees to separate professional and personal activities. The HR team can provide resources and information for employees on mental health care based on the company’s insurance coverage and Employee Assistance Program (EAP). Encourage employees to take personal time off (PTO) to relax and unwind from what is happening in the office.   

Offer Flexible Work Arrangements

Many employees are trying to figure out what is best for themselves and their families during COVID-19. Provide flexible work accommodations to ensure employees have the ability to meet needs at home whether it is childcare, education flexibility for children or caring for a parent or family member. Provide flexible work options to meet a variety of different scenarios and have regular check-ins to see how things are going. Show signs of care when addressing flexible work options. It will show your employees your commitment to their success, even in these times.   

Provide Emotional Support

Show your employees you care by performing simple tasks. Hold regular staff meetings, communicate all updates accordingly and time appropriately. Make sure employees know their value and worth, and most importantly- ask how they are doing. Determine any roadblocks and highlight major wins that have recently happened. Shout out any recent events, highlights or deals that have been positive for the company. Show employees that you are focused on growth and their success.
