Burnout Prevention and Recovery

We provide organisations with a range of programmes to help identify and prevent excessive stress and burnout in the workplace. Using research-based, validated psychological and physiological tests, we also provide personalised recovery strategies for individuals whose work performance and wellbeing are suffering as a result of burnout.

Excessive stress in the workplace can have a significant impact on employee performance and productivity.

11.7 million working days are lost on average each year due to stress related absence, costing the British economy £6.5 billion in 2015/2016. This doesn’t take into account the additional impact of employee stress on team productivity and profitability.

Excessive or prolonged stress can result in burnout – a state of emotional, mental and physical exhaustion which affects all areas of a person’s life. Burnout is characterised by feeling overwhelmed, helpless, hopeless and resentful, and can result in loss of motivation and an inability to meet constant demands, as well as increased vulnerability to acute and chronic illness.

Burnout can have a severe impact on the individual, team and organisation as a whole and as such, burnout screening and prevention should be a top priority for organisations of all sizes. Staff burnout prevention will help your business to maintain high levels of employee engagement and productivity, and to minimise prolonged absenteeism and staff attrition.
