Employee burnout; it’s the new global workplace phenomenon - and it’s reached crisis point.

Far from being just the latest buzzword, burnout has been officially categorised by the World Health Organisation as a syndrome relating to “chronic workplace stress”. A global epidemic, it’s as relevant to organisations in Asia Pacific as it is those across the globe.

According to O.C. Tanner’s 2020 Global Culture Report, 79% of employees are suffering from mild, moderate, or severe burnout - and the impacts can be debilitating, to individuals and businesses alike.
