The Bridge Burnout Indicator – Preventing employee burnout
Burnout and work-related stress are important reasons why employees may drop out and/or consider quitting their jobs. As an employer, you obviously want to prevent this from happening. By using a professional and science-based burn-out test, you not only gain insight into possible burn-out symptoms, but it also offers a picture of the experienced happiness at work of the employee(s) concerned.
The importance of preventing burnout in employees
Engaged, motivated and healthy employees ensure good business results. When employees feel seen, are enthusiastic, focused and have energy, this contributes to the well-being, job satisfaction, productivity, performance and growth of the company, institution or enterprise.
When employees feel less involved with their work or when they experience stress and (high) work pressure, burnout is a real possibility. Without support from the manager/supervisor, the consequences of burnout can be enormous. Employee burnout leads to decreased productivity resulting in negative business results. In addition, burnout among employees can result in absence, sick leave and even high staff turnover. As an employer, you obviously want to prevent this. It is therefore important to prevent employee burnout.
