Workplace burnout is on the rise, as workers feel a constant demand to deliver to a high standard. Most employees have experienced this pressure at some point in their career, however recent global disruptions, such as COVID-19, have accelerated the trend further. Performance-related pressure, coupled with economic uncertainty and unpredictable job security, has fuelled employee anxiety and stress.
Not only does this atmosphere harm workers’ wellbeing, but it also negatively impacts productivity and overall job performance.
These factors, along with others around working conditions, contributed to the ‘Great Resignation’ in early 2021, when millions of employees chose to quit their jobs en masse. Societal changes have brought mental health and wellbeing into the spotlight, highlighting the importance of maintaining a healthy work-life balance. As a result, many firms have received criticism and are now facing increased pressure to take responsibility for the wellbeing of their workforce.
In response to this challenge, employers have rapidly increased investment in the adoption of and investment in mental health programmes since employers started to consider mental health seriously.
EHS leaders are now becoming more often responsible for workers wellbeing.
