A new survey from Kronos Inc. and Future Workplace has found that employee burnout is perhaps worse than it has ever been. The survey of 614 U.S. human resource professionals found that 95% of HR leaders said employee burnout is sabotaging workforce retention. Respondents named unfair compensation (41%), unreasonable workload (32%), and too much overtime or after-hours work (32%) as the top three contributors to burnout. Dan Schawbel, partner and research director at Future Workplace, noted that the average workweek is now 47 hours, and that answering work calls or emails after hours or while on vacation has become the new norm. Reported by D. Wilkie of SHRM.
