Burnout was already on the rise in companies before coronavirus, and research has shown that the pandemic has further intensified feelings of anxiety and stress. 

And because people are an organisation’s most important asset, their mental wellbeing is crucial for your company’s long-term success.

Your organisation can take action on various fronts:

  1. Training for managers to recognise early signs of burnout and chronic stress, and taking appropriate measures to prevent it. Combine this with preventive training for employees to learn about mental resilience and energy management.
  2. Individual psychosocial support for long-term absent employees.
  3. Support and advice for the team and managers when an employee returns following a long-term absence.
