After 3 years of the COVID-19 pandemic, as we enter a new phase, concerns around workforce mental health remain at the forefront. Studies have shown that employees are experiencing anxiety, depression, and burnout at record levels. Employers understand that they must acknowledge that burnout is real and show a commitment to employee mental health and wellbeing. At the same time, employers are looking for employee wellness and burnout strategies that don’t strain budgets.
This virtual discussion will help address the current landscape, acknowledging employee burnout as a mental health issue and noting that employees may need a combination of approaches to return to feeling their best. The expert participants will also discuss how burnout and the related symptoms may be addressed with resources, tools, and skills-building techniques, provided by both the employer and healthcare providers.
