A PROBLEM THAT HARMS YOUR ORGANIZATION

Burnout is one of the most prevalent threats for your company and employees’ health.

It is a silent assassin with many HIGH hidden costs.

Slowly develops undetected.

Burnout’s slow development makes us habituated to our deteriorating state, and this way, it evolves unnoticed over time. People only realize that they have a problem after it has already progressed to more severe health issues.

Poisons your organizational culture.

Negative stress is highly contagious. How did you feel the last time when you were close to someone who was stressed?
It’s normal that you get stressed too.1

Difficult to identify its origin.

Burnout remains undetected for an individual until it’s too late. The same happens at the organizational level, where it can affect your entire company.

Hidden attack.

1 in 4 employees are at risk of burning out within 12 months, yet only 40% of highly stressed employees talk to their employer about it, and of these, only 40% get any help.2

How It HarMS YOU

Burnout continuously damages your organization.
