How to Improve Employee Wellbeing by Combating Burnout

Today’s blurred work-life boundaries continue to take a toll on employee wellbeing—so much so that 89% of employees say they’ve experienced burnout over the past year.

Employers know that the increase in burnout comes with a significant human cost by contributing to poor health. Burnout negatively impacts job performance by reducing efficiency, increasing absenteeism, and leading to higher attrition rates.

Financially, burnout adds between $125 billion and $190 billion each year in healthcare costs and costs employers $3,400 of every $10,000 in salary because of disengagement.
