Burnout: Is Your Organization on Fire?

For years, experts have been sounding the alarm that burnout is endangering the health and well-being of employees across the globe. Then the pandemic happened, and according to burnout expert Jennifer Moss, the stress of the last year “has been like putting a match to a workforce in drought.” In our latest podcast, we speak with Jennifer about the scale of the burnout crisis, why it’s an organizational rather than individual problem, and tips for employers looking to both prevent and treat it.
