In the high-stakes world of finance and accounting, burnout can creep in like an unwelcome visitor. Overwhelming workloads, tight deadlines and high expectations can take a toll, affecting job performance and overall well-being. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be this way. At Raines & Fischer, we’ve built an environment that maximizes your skills, celebrates your contributions and actively prevents burnout.
Understanding Workplace Burnout
According to a 2022 survey by the University of Georgia and accounting software company FloQast, 99% of accountants struggle with exhaustion, reduced efficiency and negativity toward their jobs. When unchecked, this chronic stress can compromise your health, happiness, relationships and work performance. Symptoms such as fatigue, reduced efficiency, errors and lowered productivity are common. More critically, burnout can decrease your motivation, creativity and problem-solving abilities – all vital skills for a thriving career in finance and accounting.
Due to workplace burnout, even high-achieving, experienced professionals can make careless mistakes and clash with their colleagues. At Raines & Fischer, we’re highly aware of the potential for burnout in our industry, and we’ve taken active steps to create a workplace that encourages balance, fulfillment and growth.
