Employee Burnout

Employee burnout or workplace burnout refers to the point when employees get exhausted physically as well as mentally. Burnout does not happen overnight, a series of triggers that keep on happening causes even the best of employees to disengage because of the depleted energy, missing deadlines and increased cynicism.

Here are some effective ways to avoid employee burnout and increase productivity.

Give Your Office A Make-Over

Refreshing the space with paint can go a long way, but choose your colors carefully. For example, white will reflect daylight and make spaces look bright and airy, while dark colors might make your workspace feel cramped and dirty.

Plants are known to improve people's moods and improve indoor air quality. One study found a direct link between plants and productivity, suggesting an increase in productivity of up to 15%.

If you can afford it, create a flexible workspace such as a seating area with a sofa ("relaxation area"), or standing desks. Allowing employees to get away from their desks can break the monotony and increase productivity. Plus, simply providing tea, coffee, and a few quality treats can go a long way in keeping employees happy and productive, at minimal cost to yourself.

Prioritize Mental Well-being

Working in a negative environment can affect the workforce in multiple ways. It is the responsibility of team managers to make sure that there is a positive environment in the team where each team member talks to each other and go out to have lunch together so that nobody feels isolated, unheard or tired during working hours.

Many companies have done it by introducing wellness meditation programs and stress-reducing sessions. Companies have adopted many wellness programs as per the requirements of their employees.

Encourage Decent Work-Life Balance

After the covid-19 outbreak, when employers sent employees to work from home and it continued to almost 2 years. During this period, employees became a bit too much comfortable in their workspace in their homes as they get to manage their work and life a bit easier.

As many companies made work from home permanent but many companies did not. However, now those employees who became a bit too much comfortable during the work from home regime have been facing difficulties now after they are called back to work from office. Hence Employers must look into and try to solve this problem so that it does not turn into employee burnout eventually.

Make Employees Feel Their Worth

It is important to make your employees feel their worth and there are many ways you can do it. Well, paying what they are actually worth is one of the major ways to make them feel their worth but apart from the amount of salary, appreciating them time to time for their hard work as well as asking for their opinion on any of the projects can make them feel that they are an important part of the company.

Apart from this, covering them with a group health insurance policy would boost their morale and it will reflect the employer’s goodwill towards the employees. Since the group health plan coverage is not limited to the employees but also extends to their dependents as well. This will take off the burden of unexpected medical bills and make them more loyal to their work.

Do Team Building Exercise & Outings

It is important for a team in the company to interact with each other to actually work as a team. In order to make them interact with each other, you can involve them in team-building exercises and take the whole team out on weekends every now and then. This will help them know their team members better and create a positive environment in the office.

Team building exercises and outings will decrease the toxic work environment along with good communication will directly impact productivity and make it even better.

Offer Group Health Insurance

In order to make your employees more comfortable and relaxed, employers must provide group health insurance plans and take the unforeseen financial burden off of the employee's shoulders. Unexpected medical situations can lead the employees to mental distress hence if the employer offers a group medical cover to the employee, it will be beneficial for both.


Employee burnout can be very lethal for your company. It depends on the employers and team managers to tackle this before it starts causing some real problems that might eventually hinder productivity leading to any kind of loss. We have mentioned some effective ways that can help you take out this problem and make the office environment healthy and happy.
