Top 5 leading indicators of stress and burnout in remote/hybrid employees

Attrition is not the sole risk factor for stressed and burned-out employees; they also tend to demotivate and demoralize others in their wake. Taking a proactive approach is key to preventing burnout before it’s too late. We combined survey data with data on collaboration and work patterns to identify the leading indicators for burnout and take swift action to mitigate that risk. Below are 5 key metrics that correlate to burnout and are the ones we commonly see companies use to detect burnout drivers before it’s too late.

6 Metrics to make Hybrid work a success

Since 2020 the ways that employees interact with each other and their leadership has fundamentally changed. The post-pandemic workforce also looks and thinks differently, so companies pursuing Hybrid or Return to Office strategies have to be cognizant and responsive to these changes in expectations and priorities.

Top 6 Metrics to measure during an economic downturn

Amid persistently high inflation, volatile market conditions, and uncertainty on consumer demand and sentiment, companies are increasingly starting to freeze hiring. Teams are quickly realizing that they need to find ways to work more efficiently with limited resources. How do organizations work to adapt to these new challenges? Here are some metrics we’re seeing companies use to gain visibility into how their teams are working and to help optimize how they work and collaborate to get more done in an increasingly constrained environment.

Measure Focus Time to Improve Productivity

Focus time - or the uninterrupted time available for individual work - has become increasingly more important for remote teams. This is especially true for knowledge workers that often need an average of 4 hours of focus time per day to complete their individual work.

Focus Time Increases Productivity in Teams

Since the pandemic began, Focus Time has declined significantly for many of our clients. As we have been helping companies combine their survey data with their collaboration data, we are starting to see correlations that have never been measured before. One such correlation in the combined data we have consistently seen is the link between the focus time their employees have and how productive they feel.

Manager 1:1s is key to Remote or Hybrid success

Being remote or hybrid can be isolating. It’s easy to feel out of the loop and out of touch with the rest of the organization, which increases employee stress and leads to higher burnout. We are seeing one key metric that seems to be highly correlated to greater employee satisfaction: Manager 1:1s. 

Impact of Workday Length on Work-life Balance

In a recent study, we found that employees' sense of a positive work-life balance is highly correlated with the length of their workday. In fact, those who worked more than 10 hours per day were 2x as likely to report feeling like they don’t have a good work-life balance. This is often a tell-tale sign that employees may be at an increased risk of burning out.

How to adapt your Employee Listening Strategy to support Remote/Hybrid

With the rise of remote/hybrid work, managers and employees no longer have as many opportunities to communicate with their teams. This hasdriven many organizations to rethink their traditional surveys-driven employee listening strategies (active listening) by augmenting them with passive listening strategies. Learn more on how to adapt your listening strategies to the new reality.

Update: The Impact of COVID-19/WFH on Work Habits

We’re now 8 or 9 weeks into social distancing, depending on where you live. For many that means we’re over 2 months into the mass scale work from home experiment. Organizations everywhere are still working to understand and react to the major implications of this change. I’ve written about how we’re using data from productivity...
