Workplace Support & Training

Staff wellbeing is a huge issue, and the consequences of burnt-out employees can be disastrous for a business or organisation. 

If staff are burnt-out, they’re exhausted, they take sick leave, they don’t communicate well, they become more irritable and create conflict, they withdraw, and ultimately are less productive and efficient. If CEOs, senior executives and management teams are burnt-out, they struggle to make good decisions, don’t communicate effectively with staff and stakeholders, and the whole organisation suffers. 

  • Workplace stress costs the economy $14.81 billion/year.
  • 3.2 days per worker are lost each year through workplace stress.
  • Healthy employees are three times more productive than unhealthy employees.
  • Mental stress claims are the most expensive form of worker’s compensation claim.
  • Unhealthy employees take nine times more sick leave than healthy employees.
  • On average, six working days of productivity are lost per year per employee due to presenteeism (presenteeism is when employees come to work but are less productive due to illness or other conditions).

Burnout affects over 50% of working adults, so whether you realise it or not, your workplace almost certainly has burnt-out staff. And that leaves you with two options:

  1. Cross your fingers and hope that staff burnout won’t have a large detrimental affect on your organisation. 
  2. Proactively plan how your workplace can support staff, reduce risks of burnout, and act effectively when staff do burn out.

If you want to have a resilient, sustainable, productive workforce, then I have 3 key recommendations:

  1. Invest the time to really understand the unique struggles facing your staff, and translate this into practical and effective action steps.
  2. Invest in training and wellbeing-promotion for all staff, and up-skilling of selected staff members in burnout risk mitigation, detection and response.
  3. Develop policies and procedures to facilitate day-to-day implementation of burnout prevention strategies, communication of policies to staff, and periodical review of effectiveness of implemented measures and alteration of policies where necessary.

 

If you want to invest in the wellbeing of your staff and the success of your business or organisation, there are several ways The Burnout Project can assist:

Staff
Workshops

Workshops enhance the ability of employees to proactively sustain wellbeing, identify symptoms of burnout, and to take effective action. This popular workshop guides staff through the process of creating a personalised burnout plan. Workshops can be tailored to meet the specific needs of staff, including addressing remote work, managing perfectionism, or preventing compassion fatigue and secondary trauma.

Burnout Mitigation Analysis and Strategy

Dr Amy Imms facilitates the creation of comprehensive burnout prevention strategies to minimise long-term risks of burnout and enhance wellbeing and productivity. This involves detailed analysis of the issues facing staff and the organisation, assessment of risk factors, creating a mitigation strategy, creating a systematic plan for ongoing burnout monitoring, and formulating clear policy guidelines for both the management team and other employees.
