Very Few Have Escaped Pandemic Work Burnout
According to a recent survey, nearly 90% of respondents in more than 40 countries feel that their work lives are getting worse during the pandemic.
More than 60% say they are experiencing burnout often or very often. The World Health Organization defines it as “a syndrome associated with chronic stress at work that goes unmanaged.” A psychiatrist explained what causes burnout and how to know if you are experiencing it.
