One of the scariest stats that has come from the global pandemic is how many managers are thinking about quitting. One study indicated that 60% of managers are feeling burnout and 20% are considering quitting because of it.
What would happen to productivity at your company is 20% of your managers quit in the next 3-6 months?
Here are some steps that you can take to prevent this:
Recognize the burnout and use all your resources to help people - time off, mental health days, providing help, etc.
Survey the population to get a handle on the issue. Not only how many are burned out, but why. Do this fast - don't make this a 6 month project. Get the survey out, back, tabulated, and corrective actions in place with 3 weeks. Yes - it can be done.
Re-evaluate what skills your managers need. Most likely the burnout occurred because they didn't have the right skills necessary to deal with the pandemic. Those issues aren't going away.
Training - focus your efforts on training your managers constantly.
What happens if you don't do this? Your managers will leave, it will be a panic situation to replace so many that you will hire.promote people who shouldn't be managers, and front line employees will underperform and leave. You'll enter a vortex of failure of which there is no easy way to escape.
