Watch Webinar on Demand: Caregiver Burnout Consortium — Burnout and Recovery

Burnout results from prolonged exposure to chronic emotional and interpersonal stressors on the job. It happens when a highly engaged employee begins to have low well-being without any support from their manager or organization. When engaged employees face increasing demands and stressors without the resources necessary to cope with these demands, their risk for burnout rises.

In order to prevent burnout, it’s crucial that employees are able to recover from daily stressors and that organizations enable employees to do so.

In this webinar, Limeade Chief Science Officer and Chief People Officer, Dr. Laura Hamill, and People Scientist and Burnout Specialist, Dana Auten, share research from the Limeade Institute on burnout and recovery — along with insights on how organizations can help their employees prevent and alleviate burnout.


  • How people differ in their risk for burnout
  • Different risk levels of burnout
  • What is recovery from work and how do we recover?
  • What can be done to prevent and alleviate burnout?
  • What can organizations, managers and individuals do?


  • Recovery and burnout prevention are organizational issues — it’s the organization’s responsibility to prevent and alleviate employee burnout, and enable employees to care for themselves and recover from work daily.
  • Burnout and recovery look different for everyone. We all experience different stressors and demands, and have varying levels of burnout risk. This means employees may all need differing forms of recovery.
  • Recovering from work daily replenishes key resources that employees need to meet their work demands and perform.
