9780749453398: Boreout!: Overcoming Workplace Demotivation

Philippe Rothlin and Peter Werder estimate that 15 per cent of office staff are on the way to boreout” chronic boredom and demotivation in the workplace.  They’re underchallenged, uninterested, and spend hours each day simulating work.  These employees have given up and become resigned to their situation, suffering what is effectively the opposite of office burnout.  Boreout lowers morale, productivity, and profits.

 

In this new book, Rothlin and Werder bring to light this phenomenon which, though prevalent, has only recently been recognized.  They show employees and employers how to recognize boreout and avoid its consequences, which can include dissatisfaction, weariness, and loss of zest for life not to mention the economic problems caused by bored employees spending hours of company time surfing the net.  In conclusion, they offer solutions to help companies and workers find their way out of boreout.
