HR-in-15 Interview with David Shar: Fostering a workplace culture to avoid employee burnout

“An organization that wants to avoid burnout needs to start with a big why: a mission, a vision, and core values.”

Employee burnout is becoming a greater topic of focus as the world begins to emerge from the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the last episode of HR in 15, we explored what employee burnout actually is and how it presents itself with creator of the FTF Burnout-Proof Culture Model, David Shar.
