Growing Market. We project the US staffing market to grow 4% this year to reach a record $145 billion in revenue.

How to recognize burnout in your staff.

We often hear about burnout in the nurses, therapists and aides we place on short-term assignments, but we often overlook the possibility that the recruiters in high-stress sales roles who work with these healthcare professionals could suffer burnout as well.

Here are a few ways to spot burnout in your salespeople and what you can do to prevent it.

Exhaustion. A pattern of exhaustion combined with

lack of motivation and negative attitude at work can be signs of burnout.

Lack of motivation. A sudden dip in motivation from an employee who consistently over-performed in the past could mean it’s time to check in with that employee.

Negativity. While employees will experience some negative emotions from time to time, it’s important to recognize when it becomes unusual or persistent for employees.
