Boreout  - being chronically bored at work

Boreout is when we are chronically bored by our work to the point of our work feeling utterly pointless.

Factors that can cause chronic boredom includes:

  • A demoralising physical environment, like a cubicle farm.
  • Feeling under-challenged over a long time.
  • Meaninglessness - feeling that the work doesn't have any purpose.

Constantly changing team members

Hearing the term 'revolving door' in the workplace can mean constant staff turnover and signal something very wrong with how a company is managed.

Yet, a little bit of disruption can also be positive. New research shows that shaking up your team just the right amount or bringing new faces into an organisation can increase creativity.

People want engagement and focus in their meetings

However, meetings are often frustrating. Most of the time, the same people who do all the talking. They often derail the meeting and make it take longer than planned.

Similarly, it's always the same people who are quiet, and there is a concern that the lack of engagement will affect good team commitments.

Givers and takers

Employees can decide whether to act like givers or takers.

  • When they act like givers, they contribute without looking for anything in turn, such as offering assistance, sharing knowledge, or making valuable introductions.
  • When they act as takers, they try to get other people to serve their ends while hoarding their expertise and time.

Studies found a strong link between employee giving and desirable business outcomes, such as higher profitability, productivity, efficiency, and customer satisfaction.
