How a Mentor Program Can Prevent Employee Burnout and Keep You Employed

People & Culture

Employee engagement has been hitting all-time lows after COVID, and many people are choosing to leave their positions for others because:

They don’t trust leadership.

They aren’t getting regular constructive feedback.

They aren’t recognized for their contributions.

They don’t have the tools they need to succeed.

They don’t see the bigger picture.

They aren’t playing to their strengths.

They haven't developed skills to foster emotional resilience.

They are burned out, but nobody has noticed.

Most of us believe that burnout is something that happens to someone else. We tell ourselves that it’s something that only happens to those who work day and night without a break. However, it happens gradually, and it’s happening to all of us at an alarming rate. 

In this panel, hear about how some organizations are structuring mentor programs to try to create a culture of wellness. Learn how to identify signs of burnout before it becomes unmanageable, and how to help employees cope with their stressors in healthy ways.
