Wellness and Employee Burnout: How to Spot and Counteract It in Your Workplace - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: You’ll learn how to recognize, analyze, and properly address employee burnout.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has expanded the definition of the term “burnout,” and now classifies it as an “occupational condition.” The new definition explains that burnout results from chronic workplace stress. While burnout is not classified as a medical condition, there are other diagnosable conditions that can accompany burnout—stress, anxiety, and depression. Burnout, and what can follow, can present problems for employers and workplaces, not only in negative feelings toward the workplace, but with possible Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accommodation requirements.

While burnout can be caused by a number of factors—feelings of being overworked, underappreciated, or without a chance for advancement—HR needs to recognize and address it before it snowballs into even bigger problems for both employee and employer. When you spot potential burnout, it is crucial to work with the employee and their manager to adjust the work situation. Sometimes the manager is part of the problem, and they may require coaching or training to alleviate some bad habits or a negative approach.

Clearly, it is a better approach for employers to be proactive when it comes to burnout rather than just labeling an unhappy employee as a “problem.”

Use this on-demand webinar to learn about the practical impact burnout as an occupational condition could have on your workplace, Labor and employment attorney Mark Schickman will explain legal risks associated with burnout and discuss methods for approaching prevention and alleviating it when it does happen.

After attending this webinar, you’ll be able to: 

  • Spot employee burnout and check in with employees using surveys and other methods
  • Aim for consistency and a work culture that is accepting, as well as equitable compensation
  • Assess managers for their management style—are they too demanding, inflexible?
  • Avoid discrimination lawsuits by training management and creating understanding of the condition of burnout
  • Devise ways to address burnout before it escalates into a medical condition such as depression
  • Increase employee productivity and engagement by addressing burnout early
  • And much more!
