If your small business seems to be lacking a little body heat these days, you’re not alone: According to CareerBuilder’s recent Talent Crunch study, one third of small business employers said they experienced increased turnover in the past year.

If this doesn’t sound like fun for your employees, it’s not exactly a picnic for your bottom line, either: 34 percent of employees also note that they feel their quality of work is decreasing as a result of their exhaustion.
Earlier this month, CareerBuilder’s Vice President of Human Resources, Rosemary Haefner, hosted a webinar to discuss new and effective ways small business employers can eliminate employee burnout, decrease workplace stress and increase productivity at their own organizations.
