From burnout to earnout

A study unveiled by disruptive advisory firm Trachet, has highlighted the effect that returning to work post-pandemic has had on the youngest generation of the UK workforce.

46% (5,125,000) of Gen Z workers and 40% (4,457,000) of millennial workers state they often feel tired, helpless, or lonely from the world of work due to their workload. 37% (978,000) of Gen Z workers find that in running their business, they have no one to support them, they do all key tasks alone and that disconnects them from their passion and 61% (3,451,000) of Gen Z workers state they’re happy to compromise their career aspirations in order to avoid burnout.

As the UK navigates a critical point of recovery post a two-year hiatus, the report titled ‘From Burnout to Earnout’ shows an under- resourced workforce and a body of decision- makers in dire need of high-level counsel. To frame the core outcomes of the nationally representative data, 28% of Gen Z respondents said they can’t remember the last time they spent quality time with their families due to their workload.

Claire Trachet CEO and Founder of Trachet said: “A burnt-out workforce is one of the biggest barriers that inhibit businesses from growing effectively. The challenge lies in identifying these traits within your teams before it develops into a more serious issue.”
