5 Easy Questions To Measure Your Team's Burnout Risk.

September 8, 2022

Managing burnout within your team is an overwhelming task.

But the first step is simple: measure their burnout risk.

Ask them these 5 questions:

1️⃣ I feel mentally exhausted at work

2️⃣ I feel physically exhausted at work

3️⃣ I am not enthusiastic about my work

4️⃣ I can't control my emotions at work

5️⃣ I can't concentrate at work

Get your team (and yourself) to answer these questions using a scale where: 1 = strongly disagree, and 7 = strongly agree.

The next step is to calculate the sum of their answers and assess their burnout risk:

5 - 14 = low burnout risk

15 - 25 = moderate burnout risk

26 - 35 = high burnout risk

💡Velbi Top Tip💡

Avoid calculating the average burnout risk for your entire team. This may lead you to believe that your team is doing better than they actually are.

Instead, make a note of how many of your team members fall into each classification:

3 members = low burnout risk.

2 members = moderate burnout risk.

1 = high burnout risk.

Interpretating your team's results in this way will help you support the individual needs of your team members, in turn making them feel heard and valued.
