2021 was the year of The Great Resignation. A record-breaking 47.4 million people voluntarily left their jobs, and the numbers for 2022 are showing little relief for companies in their search to retain talent. Burnout has been cited as the number one reason employees are leaving their jobs, and it has presented itself as a hurdle that companies and HR leaders are facing, with 44% of employees saying that they are more burned out on the job. Burnout can affect not only workplace happiness and satisfaction but also have serious long-term consequences on individual health, leading to poor sleep and ultimately higher risks of heart disease, diabetes, and stroke, as well as anxiety and depression.
