We bet you’ve had a conversation or two recently with a friend who is finding work tough post-return to the office. As the pandemic wanes and things go back to some kind of normal, many workers are really feeling it.
Perhaps it is no surprise, then, that trends like the TikTok-led “quiet quitting” one have so captured imaginations. For lots of people, keeping their heads above water during the working week is about all they can manage.
Quiet quitting is a trend rooted in employee disengagement, which in turn is a symptom of burnout and exhaustion. The WHO characterises the disengagement of burnout as, “Increased mental distance from one’s job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one’s job.”
And it turns out that UK workers are really feeling this. Recent research found that 88 per cent of UK employees have experienced at least some level of burnout over the last two pandemic years. Additionally, 33 per cent said they frequently suffered from physical and mental exhaustion due to workplace pressures.
Working from home has been a boon for many, but for others it has caused blurred lines. Many workers find it hard to switch off, take proper breaks or put a hard-stop to their working day, checking in on email and Slack when they should be relaxing.
The result for a lot of people has been a lightbulb moment that has accelerated into what we know as the “great resignation”. If you’re at this point with your job then there is hope. There are plenty of great roles out there with flexible working arrangements, good benefits and best of all, a clean slate to start from.
