Let's face it. There are toxic workplaces out there. The company or the organization often has unwritten expectations that create the perfect climate for problems to flourish. Stress management in the workplace is often left largely up to the individual.
Workplace stress comes in a variety of shades. Recognizing employee burnout and doing something about it will take some major eye opening and guts in many organizations.
Here are some primary causes of employee burnout, overload, stress and fatigue.
Burnout and Decision Making
Burnout and decision making inability are often found together. You're responsible for results but not for the decisions that control the process.
Company Values and Burnout
Unspoken expectations determine reality more than nice words on a plaque in the foyer or on the organization's website.
Voice at Work and Burnout
Not having a voice at work and burnout is debilitating. It devalues your expertise, experience and insight.
Company Recognition and Burnout
Company recognition and burnout would never show up together if someone paid attention to encouraging what's good.
Good Relationships and Burnout
When you have good relationships and burnout is non-existent, there's something to look forward to each day when you arrive at work. Otherwise it can be stressful.
To Do List and Burnout
Keep giving a person an impossible to-do list with little listening or understanding and burnout will inevitably come.
Burnout and Project Deadlines
Burnout and project deadlines that are unreasonable often show up together. They suck the life out of good people the organization should keep.
Lack of Resources and Burnout
Lack of resources and burnout go together when there's a constant expectation of delivery . If you don't have something to draw from, it's pretty hard to deliver.
