Beating burnout (myths, insights and strategies)

Labelled an "occupational phenomenon" by the World Health Organisation, burnout has become one of the most significant on-the-job hazards facing workers today. It's prevalent, pervasive and widely misunderstood.

Often considered an individual weakness or a failure to handle workplace stress, the reality is that burnout points directly to workplace environment and culture issues.

After reaching new highs during the Covid-19 pandemic, recent New Zealand research shows burnout rates remain stubbornly high at nearly three times pre-Covid-19 levels. New Zealand workers are more likely to suffer burnout than any other country.

So, what can we do?

In this webinar, Principal Consultant Robyn Tyler shares her experience as a leader navigating workforce burnout and what she learned along the way. Robyn draws from industry experts to share research-based insights into the causes of burnout, bust open some common myths that hold us back and explore what we can do to prevent and manage burnout.
