An increasing number of people suffer from burn-outs and its symptoms. This does not only affect people’s personal lifebut also significantly affects organisations that are suddenly faced with a diminished staff, increased costs and higher workload for other employees potentially creating a ripple effect among employees. Moreover, a person’s productivity and energy are affected long before an actual burn-out occurs impacting organisational costs significantly1. Through early identification,burn-outs can be prevented and ensure a vital workforce, which is the core purpose of System U’s Vitality Scan solution built using the Be Informed platform. Jeroen van der Graaf, Partner Research & Development at Systems U, tells us more about the Vitality Scan solution.
Importance of early burn-out identification
“We see current stress prevention is often ineffective and often executed too late.” Organisations can avoid the unwanted consequences of burn-outs by taking a modern and comprehensive approach to burn-out prevention. System U’s vision is to capture stress sources at an early stage and advise organisations on how to create an environment beneficial to all stakeholders. “The value of our prevention vision goes beyond saving costs and time. Through our algorithm based upon numerous researches we are able to pinpoint the exact drivers behind an increased burn-out chance.” This algorithm has been captured in the Vitality Scan.
The Vitality Scan
By mapping personal and environmental factors, which are cross-checked in the algorithm, the Vitality Scan is able to determine a person’s and team’s energy level. A detailed report shows driving factors behind the given energy level, necessary actions to improve or maintain this, and the required tools to achieve this. The Vitality Scan provides valuable personalised insights, which enable organisations to pro-actively reduce chances of burn-outs while improving the organisational environment.
“Be Informed believes in our algorithm and, moreover, the dynamic modelling allows continuous flexible development with limitless possibilities.” Thanks to dynamic modelling the flexibility required for intricate vitality issues can be handled effectively yet delicately. “This is just the start, we see so much potential.”
