Nearly all managers and employees cite some degree of burnout

August 20, 2019

Nearly all managers, 96%, believe their team members are experiencing some degree of burnout, and nearly all workers, 91%, agreed, according to a survey released today by Accountemps, a division of Robert Half International Inc. (NYSE: RHI).

Managers cited an average burnout level of 5.6 on a 10-point scale, and workers also cited an average burnout level of 5.6.

“Employees are often OK with working hard if they know that their efforts will not go unnoticed by their employers and it helps them advance their careers,” said Michael Steinitz, senior executive director of Accountemps. “However, maintaining high productivity cannot come at the expense of staff members' well-being and engagement.”

The online survey includes responses from more than 2,800 senior managers with 20 or more employees. In addition, the survey included more than 2,800 workers 18 years old or older and employed in office environments.
