Understanding Burnout

Understanding Burnout:  The Myths about burnout that are limiting our understanding and preventing us from being effective in prevention. Despite Burnout being a hot topic that many companies are trying to address, the rates are still on the rise. Not just for employees, but for HR professionals as well.  Rather than working harder, we would like to help HR leaders work smarter by helping them investigate some of the underlying assumptions about burnout we’ve been lead to believe that are not true, and making it difficult to be effective at preventing burnout.

What to expect...

  • Great opportunities to network with others in the industry and share issues and ideas
