Description

A transportation robotics company turned to Altoros to develop a mobile app for ride rentals featuring its electric scooters.

 

Brief results of the collaboration:

 

The customer developed a mobile app that enables almost 170,000 users to rent scooters in over 12 cities across the United States and Europe. With the display of geofenced zones in real time, the company safeguarded users from entering restricted areas or riding at full capacity in low-speed areas. By notifying users about slowing down or disabling the vehicle, the organization also minimized the risk of an accident when approaching such zones. With an in-app wallet that requires replenishment, the customer prevented users with insufficient funds on a bank account from cheating and renting a scooter.

To quote the HBR, “Employee burnout is a problem with the company, not
the person”, but to minimise the risk of burnout happening and their staff suffering,
both employers and employees must act. Very few people have the ‘superpowers’ to deliver around the clock to a high standard. Believing in ‘doing it all’ with no side effects very often leads to failure and disappointment because it is impossible: something must give.
So why do we expect our bodies to keep up with all the extra stresses we put on them without something giving? The managers critical role in preventing employee burnout
Managers’ behaviour and being a role model play a part in burnout and its control. Consider a manager who works weekends, late into the evening. Their team may think they have to do the same, even if it’s against the values of the organization. To help ensure employees perform to their best, employers must ensure they have not only good policy and practice, but also a supportive suite of employee assistance tools in place. This can range from having an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) to courses on stress management. Or encouraging employees to feel safe discussing mental health and fostering a culture that recognises issues and works hard to resolve them. This allows employees to feel free to make choices that balance their work-life without worrying about the consequences it might have on their career. Policies that restrict work contact out of office hours (which has become law in some European countries), limits on overtime, and recognise overwork as a health and safety risk, not a virtue, are some examples of how things can change for the better. Providing a suite of alternative employee benefits that support work-life balance such as flexible time options, wellbeing apps, meditation classes as well as many others can benefit both the employee and the employer.
