FloQast released the Controller’s Guidebook: Burnout in Accounting survey, revealing an alarming level of burnout among accountants.

 

Conducted in partnership with the University of Georgia’s Consumer Analytics program, the survey evaluated participants on a 100-point scale covering three major areas of burnout: emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and low sense of personal accomplishment. The survey found that:

 

90%

of accountants are experiencing some level of burnout, with 24% of those reporting high levels.

 

81%

of participants reported having their personal lives disrupted by the month-end close.

 

85%

of participants had to reopen the books in at least one month over the past year to fix errors.
