Today, CareerBuilder released its annual Mother’s Day survey, the results of which I might not bring up at this Sunday’s brunch, lest you risk ruining your appetite for Eggs Benedict (and that is not okay where I come from)…
It seems that struggling to find a work/life balance as they take on additional hours and second jobs in tough financial times is starting to take a toll, as 34 percent of the 496 mothers surveyed report feeling “burned out.”
Not all that surprising consider that, according to the survey, 30 percent of working moms, whose companies have had layoffs in the past 12 months, are working longer hours, and 14 percent have taken on second jobs in the last year to help make ends meet.
The survey results also indicate that working moms are feeling increased pressure to be able to continue providing for their households and are spending more time on work:
Increased workloads are impacting the quantity and quality of time spent with their families - adding to their feelings of anxiety:
Needless to say, “burned out” employees don’t exactly make for the most productive employees - even if they are bringing work home with them. This holiday, honor the working mothers at your company by thinking of ways to ease the stress that comes from raising a family in addition to holding down a job.
