Avoiding burnout as an employer

by | 7 Jul, 22 | Podcast

This episode is the third in our 3 part mini-series on ways to avoid burnout.

In this part, we’re exploring ways to avoid burnout when you’re an employer and responsible for others as well as yourself. We touch on several areas to consider and connect with when you’re considering burnout on an organisational level, and wanting to create a working culture that doesn’t lead to burnout.

Hopefully, this will give you some inspiration to weave some of these areas into your own organisational journey towards healing from burnout.
