Professionals Exhausted Overworked

Burnout Is A Growing Problem

A user shared, “Completely exhausted and days run together. Slack never-ending, and sometimes it’s hard to get going in the morning since I know I won’t be moving for 10+ hours. Setting boundaries best I can, but it’s just hard.”

A user at Lyft shared, “Slack is my top 3 worst things to happen to web.”

A user at Microsoft shared, “Moved from Amazon to Microsoft. Went from exhausted to thriving”

A user at VMWare shared, “Overworked and exhausted. I have a problem; I work 5 am to midnight with small breaks throughout the day. I’ve done it for a year now, so I think I set the bar so high that if I let up, I’ll appear to be underperforming compared to my own standards.”

Workplace burnout was a growing problem in many professions even before the pandemic. The combination of professionals who are exhausted and overworked should be alarming to business leaders. It’s essential to address burnout because it has serious consequences for individuals’ mental health. Burnout can also be contagious and often affects entire workplaces.
