Spotting and Preventing Burnout

Time: 11.00 - 12.00 | In 2019, burnout was recognised and define by the World Health Organisation as a significant and costly work-related condition. This is not only at business level but also at a personal level, as recovery can take considerable time. In the wake of numerous global crises, both past and present, the risk of burnout is much greater, making it increasingly important that leaders, managers and colleagues understand and recognise burnout, and reduce and remove the work-related risks.

    This session explores and defines burnout and why it’s on the rise, provides facts and figures, and examines the factors at work that can be changed which lie behind it.

    It explains what happens in the brain and body and how burnout impacts every corner of our health. The session teaches the signs and symptoms to look out for in ourselves and others and shares practical steps to prevent burnout and look after ourselves better.

    Crucially it highlights the aspects of a work culture that protect everyone’s wellbeing and promote performance.

    Participants will leave the session with a greater understanding and awareness of this condition, and empowered with strategies to prevent it.

    The session is grounded in science and evidence, led by Work Well Being Associate, a medical doctor with a background in psychiatry and public health.
