Battling Burnout in Your Finance Team

As a leader, the last thing you want is for a team member to feel burnt out. But finance and accounting burnout is a real thing and may be hard to spot if you don’t know where to look. The truth is, there’s no magic cure to prevent burnout from happening, but there are ways to effectively manage the symptoms and keep your employees feeling – and performing – their best.

Finance Manager measuring impact of burnout in the workplace

The past two years have seen an increase in burnout (thanks to the pandemic). Many workers have been toiling around the clock to deliver exceptional products and services – add to that the challenges of remote work, social distancing and lack of childcare options, and you get a workforce ready to throw in the towel.

Everyone gets stressed, and the demands of work, home and the changing economic climate can be mentally and physically burdensome. However, burnout manifests when you’ve been worn down by stress again and again. In fact, a recent Korn Ferry survey showed that as much as 89 percent of U.S. professionals are suffering from burnout.

Burnout Vs. Work Stress

The most important aspect of burnout is that it’s manageable. Leaders can help their teams by staying mindful of key elements and taking preventative measures.
