Remote work is not a privilege. It’s the way that a lot of people work today. While remote jobs provides increased flexibility, remote workers are dealing with burnout too.

WHY?  Remote employees feel burnout because they feel like they have something to prove. They want to show their leaders that they can be trusted, so they feel the need to work harder, which creates more stress and fatigue.

Companies & Leaders must be mindful of how to frame remote work. Here are some tips to help remote workers avoid burnout:

  1. Develop boundaries. One boundary is to have a dedicated workspace that you can join and leave. Or, put your laptop in a drawer or closet when you are done with work. Start and end your workday with a ritual that signals to your brain it’s time to change from work to personal or vice versa.
  2. Turn off email and work notifications after work hours. Let people know your general schedule and when you are “off the clock” so they aren’t left wondering.
  3. Encourage more personal activities by scheduling them. Most people struggle with the “work” part of work-life balance. Schedule personal activities and have several go-to hobbies that you enjoy so you will have something specific to do with your personal time.
  4. Focus on work during your work time. If you are productive and efficient throughout the day, at the end of the day it will be easier to walk away feeling accomplished and not be tempted to work into the night to finish what should have been completed during the day.
  5. Leaders need to communicate with their remote employees Do not assume you know what they are going through. You need to ask them. Some people are better at hiding their burnout than others. If you communicate with your team, you’ll always know how they feel about the work they do. Make communication a priority, so your team feels comfortable talking to you about issues that are affecting them at and outside of work.

In our practice we are seeing more and more people experiencing a high level of stress and getting very closed to burnout. Whether you are a leader or an employee we hope you find these tips helpful!

  2. I have talked to many friends about this burnout and fatigue. Great tips for the employers. Hope they realize and put these advice in action.
