Employee "burn-out" regardless of the employment situation and the economy in 2011. True the adage with most employment situations bosses and managers is "being glad you have a job" and then go on to make what used to be considered unreasonable demands to workers and employees not long ago. Yet it must be remembered that power trips are to no one's benefit. Businesses are in "business" to serve and turn a profit. Any business or even non-profit organization that prides itself on how hard, and how many hours they can coax out of workers is fooling itself in the long run. Employee burn out is to no one's benefit and should like everything else in a normal workplace setting be "managed." Burn-out often occurs when employees become disillusioned about the worth of their job, not so much that they burn out from working too hard or burning the mid night oil. Interestingly if workers truly enjoy their employment burn-out is seldom an issue. For example with teachers and police, it comes from seeing criminals who are back on the street after only a short episode in the courts and perhaps limited incarceration, For teachers its seeing kids who only want to play video games, never to enjoy reading and school time and basically are not interested in and refuse to learn. In business burn out shows itself in employees who feel that they are not making progress, efforts are fruitless and the company or service they provide is not particularly worthwhile. Then as a direct result reduced productivity and a cynical attitude emerges in that employee or groups or employees. Worse yet not only is productivity of those people reduced but this attitude of cynicism among these people spreads among the whole team and workforce like a wild brush fire. What are the solutions to prevent of deal with employee or even whole workforce "burn out?" First it is crucial to revive the belief and belief systems that job at hand are still very worthwhile. Managers and management should involve workers in a wider range of ultimately stimulating tasks. True this is usually fairly easy since each and every firm; organization and company no doubt have problems on hand that need direct and even immediate care and attention. Tactics involved may include a range of actions. For example you can convert trouble spots into special projects that can be supervised by longer term, more experienced staff. Ensure to make it a solid practice to compliment employees honestly and sincerely each time they go beyond the scope and scopes of their regular duties and jobs. Lastly include employees in meetings or occasional trips, seminar or internet webinars to let them have a greater scope of interest, know that there is light at the end of tunnel and perhaps work and interact with folks that they do not regularly see or even talk to. Employee burn out is still an issue in most workplace settings in 2011. True there are a shortage of jobs out there in the workforce and workers and staff are easily replaceable. But are they? Your group may have well invested great time, effort and expense in training staff and bringing them up to a level of skill and expertise. These experienced workers for the most part should be productive.

If they are lost due to burnout the whole enterprise may be affected normally during the hiring and training process of jobs and functions that these staff members do very well and proficiently today.
