With more and more employees reporting mental fatigue and burnout, especially since the start of COVID, companies are starting to put actions into place, offering more mental health resources, webinars, and trainings. However, these actions are typically for employees once they’ve already started burning out, which doesn’t necessarily mitigate the burnout.
I propose a more proactive solution: an Employee Burnout Tracker. This tracker would link to project management software, like Jira and Asana, and it would measure employee workloads by measuring assignments given to them and deadlines. If an employee is coming close to being overloaded with work, it proactively informs the employee’s manager, so the manager can start to look for ways to alleviate workload or redistribute assignments, so the employee is supported before they become burned out.
I believe my solution will be valuable for enterprises in helping improve employee experience and retention. If you are a corporate buyer: is this something you’d be interested in for your workforce?
