Almost four in 10 (38%) U.S. professionals feel more burned out than now than a year ago, according to a recent survey from Robert Half. One in five said that their manager hasn’t taken action to alleviate work-related stress, while 37% feel uneasy talking about burnout with their boss. 

The survey of more than 2,400 professionals found that the top factors contributing to burnout are:

  • Heavy workloads (56%)
  • Lack of communication and support from management (32%)
  • Insufficient tools and resources to perform effectively (27%)

Employees who are receiving support have been encouraged to take time off (26%), provided greater schedule flexibility (24%), and given guidance on prioritizing projects (22%). Groups with the highest burnout levels include Millennials, working parents, and employees who have been with their company for 2 to 4 years.
