In this powerful book, happiness expert Jennifer Moss explains why burnout is so rampant-and provides simple, researched-based solutions for helping employees minimize stress and building happier workplaces.
We tend to think of burnout as a problem that we can solve with self-care: more yoga, better breathing techniques, and more resilience. But evidence is mounting that applying band-aid solutions to an epic workplace phenomenon isn't enough. If we're going to solve this problem, organizations must take the lead, developing an anti-burnout strategy that moves beyond apps, wellness programs, and perks.
In this eye-opening, conversation-shifting, and practical guide, Jennifer Moss lays bare the real causes of burnout and how organizations can stop the chronic-stress cycle that an alarming number of workers suffer through. The Burnout Epidemic explains: how burnout happens-and what to do about it; how traditional wellness initiatives fall short; how to build a strategy based on prevention, not perks; how to measure burnout in your organization; and how to develop a happier culture that's high on resilience and curiosity.
As the pandemic has shown, self-care is not the cure for our problems. We need to do more. With the help of fascinating research, new findings from the pandemic, along with interviews with leaders around the globe, listeners will find insightful and actionable advice in this book-and will feel empowered to help themselves and their employees feel healthier and happier.
