More Than 3/4 of Workers Say They’re Burned Out

According to a recent survey of more then 7,600 workers by CareerBuilder.com, 78% of American workers say they’re burned out.  46% of workers said that their workload has increased in the first half or ’08 and nearly half (45%) rated their work load as either heavy or too heavy.  Almost one in four are unhappy with their work/life balance.

Sometimes small businesses may feel that they can’t compete with bigger competitors for the top talent.  But with nearly eight out of ten workers feeling the effects of burnout, it’s likely that many excellent employees are more interested in a better lifestyle and more satisfaction with their work.  A creative package of salary, benefits, flexible hours, and an enjoyable place to work just might get you that high-quality employee you thought you couldn’t afford.

The results of the survey were reported in the Atlanta Business Chronical.  Thanks to Anna Farmery for the link.
