Employee Burnout: Signs and Action Steps



Presenter: Kevin Sheridan

Original Program Date: April 2019 (available for on-demand viewing through August 2019)

Program length: 60 minutes

Remember those promises that technology would make everybody's life easier? It hasn't exactly worked out that way. Instead, the lines between on-the-clock and off-the-clock have blurred. Employees answer e-mails at all hours of the day and night, take work calls while they're driving home and do work virtually even when they are on vacation. And all of that has led to a higher level of burnout, which affects your workplace in many harmful ways: higher turnover, reduced productivity, greater safety risks and more. In this program, author and consultant Kevin Sheridan will describe:

  • How to recognize burnout in your employee population
  • How key programs like rewards and recognition can help you get on the right track and keep others from feeling burned out
  • How to communicate your company's commitment to eliminating toxic workplace practices that lead to burnout
