Tackling Burnout by Tracking Employee Wellness Data


New data reveals that transparency could be the best solution for treating work-induced burnout. According to a study released by research firm Deloitte and Workplace Intelligence, 85% of C-suite executives believe that organizations should require mandatory reporting of well-being metrics; however, only half of these executives feel that their own companies are doing enough to promote transparency. 

The study also highlights the rising awareness of workforce well-being, which refers to a holistic measure of staffers' mental, physical, social, and financial health. SEC Chair Gary Gensler wants to require public companies to disclose "human capital" data, which could include workforce health, benefits, and skills and development training. 

While executives believe that their policies are helping to promote employee well-being, employees share a somewhat different view. To bridge this disconnect, managers should conduct frequent check-ins, model healthy behaviors, and encourage employees to take breaks and time off work. Impressive well-being metrics are predicted to be an effective tool for recruitment and retention.
