Utilising smart tech to battle employee burnout

Modis Posted 16 November 2021

Is your technology roadmap ready to battle what could be the new worker pandemic? Mental health is a global and universal issue, spanning all workers, regardless of age or gender.

In our most recent survey featured in our white paper “Resetting Normal”, more employees are saying their mental health has worsened in the last 12 months. This coupled with working hours increasing by 14% since 2020, and 63% of workers saying that they have worked more than 40 hours per week over the last 12 months, it’s not surprising that burnout is highlighted as a cause for concern by almost 40% of the workforce. An even more alarming stat, 54% of young leaders are reporting they are already experiencing burnout.
