According to a recent article in The New York Times, burnout affects more than half of the employee population in the United States. Millions of people struggle with unwanted symptoms including fatigue, decreased work production and poor attitude toward life. Employee burnout is generally viewed as an individual problem — a situation created by time mismanagement and an employee’s inability to handle stress. It turns out that this might not be the case. Studies show time and time again that a company’s culture and unwillingness to support employees is also a contributing factor to burnout. With this 1-hour webinar, company leadership and management can learn and take preventive steps to minimize and prevent employee burnout.
What is employee burnout, and how much do you know about the stressors and triggers that contribute to it? As a manager or team leader, what steps can you take to help mitigate employee burnout?
Until recently, burnout wasn’t acknowledged as a valid occupational phenomenon. Individuals at Stanford researched the effect that burnout has on an organization's health costs and employee mortality rates. They found that workplace stress contributed to nearly $190 billion in healthcare costs and almost 120,000 deaths per year.
Without health and wellness resources or management support, companies experience lower productivity, higher employee turnover and excessive healthcare costs. Don't let employee burnout invade your organization. Now is the time to build your company's strategy to identify, assess and address burnout.
