Since COVID-19 became a pandemic, Glint has collected 2.9 million data points spanning over 700,000 surveys. We’ve learned that across industries, geographies, and company sizes, employees are feeling a growing sense of burnout and are having a harder time working effectively. People understandably feel overwhelmed—they’re adapting to the new rhythm of remote work, including understanding what they should prioritize and how to stay connected to their teams, and they’re juggling new challenges at home. In fact, Glint data shows that employees who said they struggle with balancing their personal and work lives were 4.4 times more likely to exhibit signs of burnout.

Managers play a critical role

In this environment of rapid change and looming burnout, managers play a critical role. Employees look to their leaders and managers to cultivate calm, keep them connected, and clearly communicate updates and priorities so the team can be successful. 

However, like their employees, managers are also adapting. They need the opportunity to learn and practice new skills to effectively lead. Recent data from LinkedIn Learning showed that managers have increased the time they spend watching online courses by 105% since the pandemic began. Managers are investing in online learning so they can better lead remote teams, improve productivity while working from home, and practice mindfulness during an anxiety-ridden time.
