Employee burnout – how to solve this issue qualitatively
Employee burnout is a natural process that is inherent in nature itself. Sooner or later, any fire, if you do not throw firewood into it, begins to fade and eventually completely fades. Similarly, over time, any employee begins to fade, if he does not “throw firewood", which is a certain motivating factor.
Over time, absolutely all employees burn out, because such are the laws of nature and such is the logic of the development of our world. Some take more time, some take less time. However, as a result, all employees are subject to burnout, regardless of their specialty, because burnout does not choose a specialty, it is typical for everyone.
There are many opinions as to why employee burnout occurs. However, they are all very approximate and provide food for thought rather than a specific answer to the question. There is only one correct answer to the question of why burnout occurs. It is correct because it takes into account the burnout mechanism.
Before proceeding to consider the mechanism of burnout, it is necessary to remember what the employee does at work. The question of what an employee does at work can be approached from different angles, which means that there will be different conclusions. One of the conclusions is that employees at work implement a certain idea, their actions lead to the fact that the idea is either realized or not.
A new idea is always a huge amount of motivation, under the influence of which employees work like clockwork
If the idea is realized, a product is created; if not, it is not created. The essence of the idea being implemented depends on what exactly the employees are doing and, in principle, this is not very important. The important thing is that all ideas have common properties. At first, when employees just get a job, the idea they have to deal with is new to them.
A new idea is always a huge amount of motivation, under the influence of which employees work like clockwork. Newly hired employees can be imagined as a fire that has just been lit. Gradually, the idea is realized and employee burnout begins. As soon as the idea is fully implemented, 100% burnout occurs.
Employee burnout has a reason
So, employee burnout is the final process of implementing an idea. The world is arranged in such a way that everything in it originates from ideas, and ideas tend to be realized and end accordingly in order to give way to new ideas. When the idea is realized, there is nowhere to move on, there is no motivation, and this is what we call burnout.
Accordingly, in order to prevent burnout of employees, they must be constantly aimed not at the implementation of the idea, but at bringing it to perfection.
All ideas have one thing in common – they come in different levels. Each new level brings the idea closer to perfection. For example, once upon a time people called using a rotary telephone. Then people communicated by push-button telephone. After the communication went by radiotelephone. The radiotelephone was replaced by mobile phones, which are now being actively replaced by smartphones.
At the heart of all these devices is a common idea. The listed devices are just tools for implementing this idea. The trick is that an idea has levels. Each new level of development of the idea is a step of the idea towards perfection, towards the absolute. Accordingly, in order to prevent burnout of employees, they must be constantly aimed not at the implementation of the idea, but at bringing it to perfection.
Employee burnout prevention
The topic of employee burnout is relevant for many businesses, because many businesses were originally built not to bring an idea to perfection, but simply to implement it. The implementation of the idea comes quickly, which means that burnout also occurs quickly. As soon as the idea is realized, the business ends and burnout sets in for both the business and employees.
Thanks to this strategy, the lifetime of a business and the activity of employees can be increased tenfold.
It can of course be supported artificially, but it is not profitable. The movement towards excellence is a long journey and huge amounts of motivation, so if you choose this path, employee burnout will come very slowly or not at all. Thanks to this strategy, the lifetime of a business and the activity of employees can be increased tenfold.
The trick is that as soon as you reach one level of development of an idea, a new level opens up. This is repeated over and over again, dozens and hundreds of times, and it’s really cool. A business built on these foundations is a perpetual business, because striving for excellence is a perpetual engine for a perpetual business. Such a business is not afraid of a crisis and such a business does not need anti-crisis marketing.
Employee burnout can be stopped
It may seem that the choice of such a strategy is very expensive and not everyone can do it, so it is better to allow employee burnout than to choose such a strategy. When some employees burn out, you can simply recruit new and fresh ones. As the experience of corporations that have opted for this strategy shows, the opposite is true.
It is the companies that have chosen the strategy of moving towards excellence that become market leaders
The bottom line is that a product or service that is created within the framework of such a strategy always has maximum competitiveness, because it is always as perfect as possible. The maximum perfect product is the maximum number of buyers, the maximum price for the product, and hence the maximum income and profits. It is the companies that have chosen the strategy of moving towards excellence that become market leaders.
