Employees who have been able to avoid layoffs and furloughs through the pandemic are facing another kind of stress. A new study by Limeade shows that these workers are burned out, much more so than before the pandemic.

Seventy-two percent of workers say they’re feeling burned out, compared to 42% of those surveyed in October 2019. Managers are also feeling stretched thin: 59% said they’re working more than they did before the pandemic, and 72% said they’re under pressure to work even when they’re sick.
