Guide: Burnout Prevention and Recovery

Burnout could be driving away your top talent — potentially costing your company millions of dollars in lost productivity and turnover. Without support from their manager or organization, and/or the ability to resolve stressors for themselves, engaged employees can eventually burn out. And the consequences can be huge.

Engaged employees drive real business results — they’re energized, enthusiastic and focused. They enjoy their work, help boost productivity, performance, morale and growth.

Learn practical tools for burnout prevention and recovery and how to keep your employees engaged.

What is burnout?

Burnout is a response to prolonged exposure to emotional, physical and interpersonal stressors that is characterized by a chronic feeling of exhaustion, cynicism and inefficacy. At Limeade, we define burnout as, when people have been highly engaged for a long time, without the personal skills and organizational support to maintain their well-being. It’s a harmful individual and organizational virus that targets the most committed employees.

But in order to burn out, you have to be “on fire“.

This means your top-performing, highly engaged employees are at the highest risk for burnout. The good news is, it’s preventable.
