Is your job causing you to burn out? Are you in a health risk situation? Have you been working overtime on a salary with no extra pay and no time to take PTO? If so, you may be part of the 77% of the work force that has and/or is currently suffering burnout! How can this happen on such a large scale? Why don’t more companies realize that if they hire contractors that can take up some of the slack for their overworked full time employees, those valuable assets will have time to recharge and regroup, thus boosting moral, health, productivity and quality?
The Harvard Business Review put out a great article on the topic and you can read it here:

Brookwoods Group has spent 20 years helping our clients solve their staffing and recruiting problems to keep them from suffering from employee burnout. But when budgets fail to get approved and the hiring of contractors has been put on hiatus, it takes a strong manager or director to step up and yell that ‘HELP IS NEEDED OR WE’RE GOING TO LOSE VALUABLE TEAM MEMBERS!’ Remember the old saying, the squeaky wheel gets the grease? Well, being squeaky may be what it takes to help save you or a team member from burning out and either experiencing a big drop in productivity or even quitting.
