More workers feeling burned out

Employee incentive programs may be more vital to maintaining a motivated and productive workforce than ever, as new research suggests a growing sense of fatigue among staffs.

Employee incentive programs may be more vital to maintaining a motivated and productive workforce than ever, as new research suggests a growing sense of fatigue among staffs.

According to a recent survey of nearly 2,000 employees by ComPsych, more workers are feeling burned out. For nearly 25 percent of staff members, their number one priority is merely showing up at the office.

The research attributed many of these feelings to increasing levels of stress. Approximately two out of three respondents said they experience high levels of stress with extreme fatigue and the sense of not being in control. As a result, more than half of these individuals miss one to two days of work per year due to stress.

"Each employee has increasingly demanding workloads," Sherrie Bourg Carter, a clinical psychologist, told Hispanic Business. "The work still has to be done, but employers want to do it with fewer employees. One person is often doing the work of two people and probably without any support staff."

Companies can use employee reward programs to break up the monotony of established routines and give workers something for which to strive.
