In my years of practice, I’ve encountered numerous clients who were experiencing job burnout. Nevertheless, I was taken back by a recent article in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette.
The headline is revealing: “Job burnout isn’t just work-related stress – it’s a health issue.” In a 2018 study by Gallup, the analytics and polling outfit, estimated 23 percent of the U.S. workforce was affected by feelings of burnout where mental exhaustion extended into physical health conditions. As a whole, the study cited 67 percent of full-time experience job burnout.
The World Health Organization classified burnout as an “occupational phenomenon.” To qualify, three conditions must be present: a drain of energy, negative feelings toward one’s job, and lowered effectiveness.
