In 2019, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared burnout a legitimate “syndrome” linked to chronic workplace stress. Burnout can have severe consequences for employees including lower productivity and turnover, as well as a serious impact on physical and mental health.
Why does this reclassification matter? It further legitimizes how urgent the global burnout problem is, the impact burnout has on your employees and business, and how seriously companies should take burnout prevention and recovery. We’re all at risk to lose our best talent and most engaged employees but there are steps you can take to protect your employees and your organization.
In this webinar with HRD, Dr. Laura Hamill, Chief Science Officer and Chief People Officer at Limeade and Dr. Reetu Sandhu, Manager, Limeade Institute, learn how to spot employee burnout at your organization and the steps for burnout prevention and recovery.
“Culture, at the end of the day, is communication to your employees saying, ‘This is just what we do here’”.– Dr. Reetu Sandhu, Manager, Limeade Institute
