The Burnout Epidemic and How We Can Fix It

Wednesday, October 20th 2021

Join us to hear Jennifer Moss discuss her compelling new book, The Burnout Epidemic, where she argues that our current strategies are getting it all wrong.

We tend to think of burnout as a problem we can solve with self-care: more yoga, better breathing techniques, and more resilience. But evidence is mounting that applying personal, Band-Aid solutions to an epic and rapidly evolving workplace phenomenon isn't enough—in fact, it's not even close. If we're going to solve this problem, organizations must take the lead in developing an anti-burnout strategy that moves beyond apps, wellness programs, and perks. Leveraging the latest research and evidence-based solutions, Jennifer will discuss the real causes of burnout and explain how organizations can stop the chronic stress cycle that an alarming number of workers suffer through to create healthier, happier, and more productive workplaces.
