'Excessive workload, office politics barriers to performance'

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Many individuals feel that excessive workload and office politics are among the main barriers to better performance at the work place, says a survey by a learning platform of the Business Publishing.

Business Publishing publishes books, including Business Review magazine.

The findings are based on around 1,700 responses from people between the age of 18-34 years.

HBR Ascend, a learning platform of Harvard Business Publishing, conducted the survey and considered the participants as millennials.

"40.33 per cent of the millennials said that their biggest barrier to performing more effectively at the work place is "excessive workload," a release said today.

Little over 39.17 per cent of the respondents cited office politics as the second biggest barrier, it added.

Harvard Business Publishing's Country Manager (India) Vivek Chachra said the aim of the survey was to gain a better understanding of how millennials view the workplace and what factors companies must consider while onboarding a millennial workforce.

"Burnout is a pressing concern for people of this segment.

"While the top two challenges remain constant across age groups, the more tenured group (aged between 25-34) felt that excessive workload is their top barrier (42.92 per cent respondents), while the younger millennials (18-24 years) identified office politics (42.39 per cent respondents) as the main pain point," Chachra said.
