After a year of pandemic-related isolation, increased workloads, and limited time off, employee burnout continues to grow, with as many as three out of four workers experiencing burnout on the job.
Employers and employees are increasingly misaligned on vital issues such as job training, scheduling flexibility and salaries, which ultimately affects both employee experience and heightens employee’s perceptions of the workplace.
High levels of stress can prove detrimental not only to an individual’s health and wellbeing but also affects the overall operations of an organisation. This can lead to lower levels of productivity, increased injuries on the job as well as overall lower job satisfaction.
As a result, individuals are resigning in search of a better work-life balance and more flexibility, in what has been dubbed “The Great Resignation.” A recent survey suggests that, in the UK, 41% of employees are considering quitting their jobs in search of more fulfilling work.
Steve Tonks, Senior Vice President of EMEA at WorkForce Software delivers this thought provoking article about the ways employers can use workforce management software and AI to assess employee satisfaction and to better the employee experience.
“Advancements in AI are making it easier for organisations to increase efficiency and streamline human resource management with greater focus surfaced through data and proactive interventions from managers,” says Tonks.
