If Your Employees Can’t Unplug from Work, They’re Probably Getting Burned Out

Your employees may be closer to burnout than you think. If they can’t set healthy boundaries between work and their personal lives, or call in sick or take a vacation day when they need to, burnout probably isn’t far off. Leaders need to institute policies that show they care about employees’ health and encourage workers to find a good work-life balance. Let people use flexible hours, take breaks and mental health days, and ignore late-night emails (which no one should be sending anyway). Talk to your team about your expectations. Tell them that resting and unplugging helps us recover and recharge, which makes us more effective at work. Create a company culture that inspires and motivates people, not one that exhausts them. Your employees shouldn’t have to work around the clock to prove how dedicated they are.
