An employers guide to employee burnout
How to spot the signs and take action
The World Health Organization (WHO) defines burnout as “a syndrome conceptualised as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed” – a definition which puts the responsibility firmly on employers and managers.
Although there are not specific statistics on burnout the HSE reported that in 2019/20, 828,000 workers suffered from work-related stress, depression or anxiety and 17.9 million working days lost.
So, this has or will impact on your business at some point and you need to be prepared for what you will do to reduce that impact to your people and to your business’ bottom line.
