New data from HR technology company CoreHR reveals that 41 percent of the UK’s top talent are close to a burn-out.

HR Grapevine reports the Smart Talent Expects study examined the behaviours and attitudes of 1000 UK employees who stand out because of their high-drive and ambition for the job.

The study found that 42 percent of smart talent employees say that work has a negative impact on their personal life and only 41 percent believe their current job allows for good work-life balance – despite 73 percent of respondents saying that a good work-life balance is attractive in an employer.

One in three (35 percent) say their current workload is unmanageable and 64 percent believe introducing new digital technologies into the workplace will enhance efficiency.

Dean Forbes, CEO of CoreHR, said people thrive when they’re challenged, but they shouldn’t be pushed to breaking-point.

He told HR Grapevine employers should always be mindful of setting clear goals as well as boundaries, and providing strong support networks for employees.
