  • The Great Resignation burdens millennials left in the office

 The COVID-19 pandemic changed the business world. Due to the seemingly endless lockdowns and quarantines, employees were able to reflect on what matters most in their lives.

The result? Great Resignation.

However, the search for a better work-life balance also has its downfalls. According to leading enterprise automation software company UiPath, 83% of millennial employees have to take on up to six new tasks outside of their job description to cover their coworkers who have resigned from their posts.

Hard work made millennials reach the peak of their careers, amassing decision-making powers in management and senior leadership roles. However, this also means that much of this generation is shouldering other responsibilities to ensure that the business could meet its objectives. 

This leads us to the effect of Great Resignation on those who were left behind — mass burnout and exhaustion. A study by employment website Indeed found that nearly 60% of millennials are feeling increased workplace burnout since the Great Resignation.

To combat this, employers must start understanding why employees feel burned out to know the steps they need to take to mitigate it. Companies should also work on compensating their workers for their hard work. This could come in various forms including monetary payments, flexible work schedules, and mental health checks to improve their employees’ well-being.
