Amid mounting concerns the ‘Great Resignation’ seen in the US and UK will hit Australia, managers across the country face the added stress of losing employees, hiring, and training new staff[1 On top of increased absenteeism, disconnected employee relationships, heavy workload and tight deadlines, concerns grow for high level executives as they take the weight of business stress on their shoulders.
A 2021 global leadership report reveals strong indications of burnout, with nearly 60% of leaders feeling used up at the end of the workday. Likewise, seven in ten (68%) small business owners would not rate themselves happy, as one in three (28%) reported a diagnosis of stress, depression, or anxiety in the last 12 months.
Burnout is the feeling of long-term exhaustion, both mental and physical and can affect anyone experiencing long-term stress marked by emotional exhaustion, de-personalisation, and a lack of sense of personal accomplishment. On top of longer hours, a global pandemic, and financial pressures, it’s no wonder people are suffering.
With demands in the corporate world differing from person to person, medical professionals treating burnout are required to understand an individual’s needs. The Banyans Health and Wellness is a private treatment centre offering personalised mental health care and private rehabilitation for those experiencing depression and anxiety, chronic stress and burnout, drug and alcohol dependency, eating disorders, and other co-occurring conditions.
This Psychology Week (29 November – 5 December), The Banyans Health and Wellness is encouraging stressed CEOs and managers to seek help, learn how to make better lifestyle choices and access psychological education tools available to support them through COVID induced stress and burnout.
