The Rise of Value-Driven Workplaces and Avoiding Burnout!

As burnout continues to be a problem in a workforce where the fast pace of modern life and work means employees often struggle to achieve balance. We are seeing people gravitate towards businesses that prioritise their wellbeing and promote better values.

📊 Statistics Show the Impact:

A study by Gallup found that burned-out employees are 63% more likely to take a sick day and 2.6 times as likely to actively seek a new job.

A survey by Deloitte revealed that 77% of employees believe that their company’s culture needs to be improved.

Research by Glassdoor showed that 89% of employees believe that a positive company culture is essential to their success.

In the face of such alarming numbers, workers are demanding more from their employers. They are seeking workplaces that prioritise mental and physical health, promote balance, and enable a culture of respect and inclusivity.

Employees are increasingly drawn to organisations that offer flexible work arrangements, mental health resources, and opportunities for professional development.

Companies that prioritise employee wellbeing and exhibit strong values are more likely to attract and retain top talent.

By creating a supportive work environment, businesses can cultivate loyalty, increase productivity, and drive long-term success.

As the landscape of work continues to evolve, it’s clear that prioritising employee wellbeing isn’t just a trend—it’s a necessity. As an ergonomics company, we are working with organisations to ensure that human factors are at the forefront of organisational behaviour and education programmes. Businesses that embrace this shift towards better values are not only taking a stand against burnout but are also setting themselves up for a brighter, more sustainable future.
