Learn how employee burnout looks, how it happens, and why workers might be hesitant to seek help.
Over the past few years, employee burnout has grown from a small concern many weren’t sure was real to a bona fide “occupational phenomenon,” according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
Workers are at their wits’ end, and if companies don’t do anything to help, they’ll pay dearly in the form of low productivity and high turnover.
It’s one thing to read about burnout in the news and another to actually experience it firsthand. To fix employee burnout, you need to understand what caused it, how it manifests, and—most importantly—what solutions employees are or aren’t using for relief.
That’s why we surveyed more than 500 U.S. employees who self-identified as suffering from burnout to learn more about this phenomenon. Presented as an infographic following one burned-out employee’s journey below, these stats can help you begin to solve what may be the defining talent management problem of the next decade.
