Since the beginning of the pandemic, 89% of people said their work life was getting worse and only 2% rated their own well-being as “excellent”. In this episode Jennifer Moss takes us through her new book "The Burnout Epidemic" and shares what leaders can do to remedy chronic stress and burnout Spoiler alert: it’s the responsibility of the organization, not just the individual!
Jennifer explains the six root causes of burnout and what employers can do to address them. She also emphasizes that while self-care (like yoga, meditation, etc) are important to help individuals optimize performance, those things are not the solution to burnout. Moss tells us why burnout isn't a problem that should be left for the individual to solve, but rather most of the causes and solutions are the responsibility of organizations.
