Job burnout – what you need to know

Job burnout is up 9% since 2021, with 5 in every eight workers feeling overworked; employee burnout is reaching new levels across the globe. Job burnout affects workers of all ages and categories and is a growing concern. In 2019, it was listed as an occupational phenomenon, by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Burnout occurs when a person feels overworked and overwhelmed, experiences chronic stress, and is generally unable to meet all expectations. It leads to symptoms of exhaustion, lack of motivation, and fulfilment and can also impact physical health.

In general, there are three types of job burnout, that is overload burnout, under-challenged burnout, and neglect burnout.

Overload burnout is when a person continues to work at a pace that is not sustainable. This is often done to pursue success, financial security, or recognition.

Under-challenged burnout involves feeling unstimulated and engaged in what you are doing. Without passion and interest, people may feel disconnected and find tasks tedious.

Neglect burnout occurs when there is a lack of purpose and agency at work, which frequently leads people to feelings of hopelessness. If employees feel like work is too complex, or there’s just too much to do, they’ll burn out.

Combating burnout includes examining boundaries, cultivating interests outside of work, joining support groups, and sharing your concerns with your managers.

Job burnout is a serious condition that can affect your personal and work life. It should be combated with the right strategies. If left untreated, it may lead to chronic illnesses or having to leave the workforce altogether.
