By host - George.Hubner
Companies are facing an employee burnout crisis: A recent Gallup study of nearly 7,500 full-time employees found that 23 percent of employees reported feeling burned out at work very often or always, while an additional 44 percent reported feeling burned out sometimes."The cost of absenteeism and turnover is enormous in most organizations," said Jim Harter, Ph.D., chief scientist of workplace management and well-being for Gallup. Aside from absenteeism, dissatisfaction and job-hopping, he says that the higher stress resulting from burnout is associated with poor physiological health.https://www.cnbc.com/2018/08/14/5-ways-workers-can-avoid-employee-burnout.html

Burnout is a serious concern but most of the times employers tend to ignore it. The employers should also take notice of their employees well being and health. Work life balance is an important aspect of a healthy work environment. Maintaining work-life balance helps reduce stress and helps prevent burnout in the workplace.

Try making the companies you work for actually support you when the problem is caused by them through workload or minimal staffing. pouting face They try to make out it's you who has the problem, not them!

Admitting burnout is unacceptable. I've never had an employer take it seriously. Walked off of sooooooo many jobs. Now, I choose jobs with low stress even it it's low pay. You get what your paid for. Design your life. Stand up for your health.

100% this. Have gone to managers having documented an obscenely unrealistic workload and been told I just needed to work SMARTer not harder. Then when I handed in my notice later in the year, they had to hire 2 people to replace me. Later I discovered that the term for this denial of a person's experience and reality is called gaslighting and it's an abuse tactic.

I just got told to work longer hours. I was already up at 4.30am and not home until 8/10pm 5 days a week and still drowning in workload. Add in the inability to sleep for all of the work to do lists BS going around in your head each night and it's pretty impossible to stay well. AND I was still made to feel guilty for""failing"" by the company. As a working culture we need to relearn the art of clocking off."

I had burnout 6 years ago working for an organisation with a toxic culture. It's taken years to recover. Horrible thing, burnout.

That's awful. One is bad enough. You must have immense inner strength.

When I was a lad we had to wake up in morning, 3hrs before we went to bed. Walk 20 miles in no shoes, do 20hrs hard labour, walk 30 miles home, lick gravel off street for dinner, get a beating then do it all again next day. Society these days are soft!
