5 Steps You Must Take Right Now to Help Your Burnt Out Employee
Over half the global workforce report they are closer to burnout today than five years ago.
American psychologist Herbert Freudenberger, in describing what was happening amongst doctors and nurses in 1974, defined ‘burnout’ as “the extinction of motivation or incentive, especially where one's devotion to a cause or relationship fails to produce the desired results.” Almost 40 years later burnout has expanded into every workplace and there is no accepted definition or diagnosis. We miss a huge opportunity by seeing our employees only as company assets to be leveraged. Every human has a purpose on earth and when they connect to it, burn out is never a factor. If you can connect your employees to their purpose, you have accomplished not only a noble feat, but also gained an engaged and purpose driven employee.
