REBA Technical Training Guide to Beating Burnout

Work pressures, organisational change and personal worries can all contribute to poor wellbeing and potentially burnout, posing a risk both individuals and businesses. This guide will help you identify some of the core causes of burnout, why it matters to businesses and how to reduce the impact that it is having on your organisation.  

For employees experiencing burnout, lengthy stress-related absences from work are personally damaging. Burnout also hits business productivity, impacts other employees and damages corporate reputation.  

This guide will help you identify some of the core causes of burnout, why it matters to businesses and how to reduce the impact that it is having on your organisation.  

Avoiding burnout requires commitment to deep-seated cultural change, from benefits design, through to workforce planning and management practices. 

That means addressing conflicts between wellbeing goals and business objectives, such as actively rewarding behaviours that can cause burnout. Putting employee wellbeing at the heart of business strategy – and meaning it – is a crucial starting point, as this guide shows.
