The World Health Organization describes burn-out as ‘chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed’. Burn-out is now officially a dis-ease. WHO says, ‘Burn-out will become globally recognized in 2022, giving healthcare providers and insurers precedent to acknowledge, treat and cover symptoms of ‘burn-out’. The WHO continues to say the following are the three defining symptoms.
> feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion;
> increased mental distance from one’s job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one’s job; and
> reduced professional efficacy
These symptoms are only related to occupational or work situations, not anything about personal issues.
In the Technology world, the people who experience work place burn-out the most are mid-executive women.
These women see the attainment of harmony in the work/life relationship as nearly impossible. Nearly, but not totally, impossible.
