Burnout: The Definition

Burnout: The Definition

Burnout is a consequence of chronic workplace stress due to exhaustion, energy depletion, increased cynicism about the profile and professional unproductivity. It is not an individual problem, but an organizational concern.

An employee feels burnt out when there is constant pressure to perform more alongside chronic job insecurity. Personal needs take a backseat due to the fear of disappointing the boss or colleagues.
