Burnout was a recognized workplace issue long before COVID-19 threw life into turmoil. In 2013, the World Health Organization predicted a global burnout pandemic would occur within the next decade. But two years of COVID-related anxiety, workplace disruptions, and the stress of balancing work demands with family needs have elevated burnout concerns to crisis level.

It’s a near certainty that burnout is having an impact on your workplace, considering that last year 89% of employees reported experiencing occupational burnout over the previous year, and 27% of those said they experience burnout “all of the time.” By comparison, just 23% of employees reported feeling burned out at work very often or always in 2018, and 44% reported feeling burned out sometimes.
