As we enter into a third year of “unprecedented events,” 55% of American workers report suffering from mental health issues directly related to events since the pandemic began, and 46% say they’re struggling to maintain their well-being.
It’s well documented that continued stress can lead to burn-out, which is characterized by the World Health Organization as “resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed.” With signs of burn-out including exhaustion, checking out, an increase of negative sentiment toward one’s job, and reduced professional efficacy, it’s no wonder that 86% of employers (as reported by SHRM) said mental health, stress and burnout are a priority in 2022.
And once again, HR is being called on to tackle the daunting task.
