It’s time to engage with employee burnout; implications of the WOrld Health Organization’s new definition in 2019

Published 31st May 2019


Burnout has long been a misunderstood and overlooked concept.

The word has been used as a euphemism for flakey or an unreliable person, or has been mistaken as simple tiredness that will resolve with a short break.

That seemed to begin to change this week with the World Health Organization’s new definition of burnout, to be included in the ICD-11.

How will the definition change the way we identify and approach occupational burnout? What do we need to do as individuals? What are the implications for employers who choose not to engage with occupational burnout in their workplaces?

We have prepared a white paper to help contextualise burnout within the current mental health landscape, identify the likely impact and shine a light on the way forward for employers that choose to engage directly, and for those that choose not to.
