Employee burnout and the reasons thereof, is a substantially researched topic. The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) considers employee burnout to be one of the most significant work-based problems in America today. According to EU-OSHA, every year, the world economy loses about 1 trillion dollars in productivity to this scourge.
Organizations therefore have significant incentive to understand the reason behind their employees not functioning at their potential as well as steps to implement proactive mitigation systems, policies and procedures.
According to the Mayo clinic, a leading international medical research institute, some of the leading causes of employee burnout are:
What is interesting about this analysis is that whilst each of these problems are individual symptoms, they all talk to a common (very common) cause… the lack of operational transparency.
Operational transparency, a buzz-word amongst the world’s leading organizational strategists since the pandemic began, talks to a scenario where relevant information is available to the right team members in real-time, no matter where in the world they are.
Imagine a situation where junior bankers didn’t have to wait until their 4pm meeting with their seniors to be given the tasks due for the next morning, but were instead, fed them live as the senior bankers made decisions in meetings throughout the day. This would cut their overtime by more than 50% and allow for significantly improved work-life balance. Or think about a scenario where management not only knew exactly what tasks their team members were busy with, but were alerted when a team member was struggling with a task and were able to offer assistance.
In terms of proactive interventions, consider the effect on productivity if management were able to use A.I. and machine learning to pick the ideal team members for specific tasks based on the data collected behind the scenes while the employees did their job on a daily basis.
