Work burnout is real. We just don't like to talk about it. However, it's something we should be talking about. Just this year, the World Health Organization recognized burnout as a syndrome associated with chronic stress at work.

Join Julie LaFleur, a burnout survivor who is now on a mission to help others, on September 26th, for the We’ve Got WIT Webinar: Burnout is Bad for Business (and Your Health).

In this webinar, we will explore what burnout is and what can you do to avoid or survive it. You will learn:

  • The signs of burnout before you even know they are happening to you, an employee, or a loved one
  • How to support yourself and others who are drowning in work or life
  • Where to turn to for help and guidance

The technology industry, an entire industry built on the need for speed, innovation and ever-decreasing time-to-market, runs rampant with burnout. A survey by Blind found that 60 percent of people employed in the technology sector feel burnt out.

Researchers at the University of Montreal conducted a four-year study, following 2,026 people working in various fields – not just technology - half of whom were women. They aimed to identify which factors contribute to work-related burnout. The researchers categorized burnout as lack of motivation, feelings of helplessness and depression, and physical symptoms like chronic headaches or higher rates of illnesses that can occur when stress suppresses the immune system. The researchers were specifically interested in monitoring workers’ levels of emotional exhaustion, cynicism, and professional effectiveness.

The results were staggering – women were far more likely to experience burnout than men. A study by InHerSight also found that burnout is one of the leading reasons why 73 percent of women want to change careers.

The WIT Network is supporting our membership in being healthier and happier with an upcoming webinar.
