Virtual Event: The Burnout Epidemic
Since March 2020, we've been operating in crisis mode. We’ve been working at breakneck speed to reinvent our roles, adapt to solitary work, and learn new policies and processes on the fly, all the while managing homeschooling - against the frightening backdrop of growing societal and political unrest.
It is little wonder that escalating numbers of people are reporting complete burnout. But chronic stress was on the rise long before the Covid-19 pandemic.
The sheer scale of the problem leaves us with only one conclusion: this is not an individual problem; it’s a problem that organizations have created, and organizations have to solve.
In her new book The Burnout Epidemic, workplace expert Jennifer Moss challenges current corporate approaches to burnout, arguing that existing wellness strategies can help optimize already healthy employees, but meditation apps and fitness challenges don’t get to the root of the issue. What's more, emphasizing individual self-care unfairly blames the victim.
Jennifer Moss will join us to discuss burnout and offer some methods leaders can employ to combat it. Jennifer will address:
- How leaders can measure burnout in their own organizations
- The six root causes of burnout—and what organizations can do to prevent it
- Why traditional corporate wellness initiatives can actually worsen the problem
- How companies to build an anti-burnout strategy based on prevention, not perks
- What leaders can do to develop a happier culture that's high on resilience and curiosity
With fascinating research, new findings from the pandemic, and interviews with business leaders around the globe, Jennifer Moss offers actionable guidance to help employees feel healthier and happier at work.
