Too often, burnout is considered to be an individual’s personal problem relating to his or her maladaptive response to stress. Recent research has shown, however, that organizations considerably influence the degree of stress experienced in their workforces. What is often not considered, however, are the financial costs that the organization must pay when their workers are burned out. Unfortunately, there are few tools used to calculate these costs.
Previously I introduced some calculations in my mini-webinar, Why Burnout Matters. In this 16-minute “mini” webinar, I’ll share some additional calculations to help you determine the real costs of employee burnout in your organization. Some of these costs are direct, while others are indirect. Considering the incredible expenses associated with burnout, isn’t it time that your organization steps up to the plate by taking proactive steps to stop burnout in its tracks?
