• You're not alone.  The impact of COVID-19 on women's employment is a real concern.

    According to the McKinsey and Leanin.org, 2020 Women in the Workplace study, 1/4 women are considering leaving the workforce or downshifting their career. Despite companies’ efforts to support employees during the crisis, women are feeling more exhausted, burned out, and under more pressure.

    One of the main drivers is the increased burdens of unpaid cared such as shopping, cooking, cleaning, taking care of kids and parents in the household—which is disproportionately carried by women. Care giving responsibilities have increased on average of about 3 more additional hours per day, equivalent to 15 hours or more a week - similar to having a part-time job.


    Compounded with additional stressors at work, women are feeling the increased pressure to be "always on", resulting to anxiety, overwhelm, confusion, fatigue - a recipe for burnout.

    Founders of The Burnout Clinic

    Are you a HR Manager or Workplace People Leader?  This is how we can help.

    Women leaving your workplace can be detrimental to your organization efforts for increased gender parity. Projections from McKinsey and Oxford Economics are showing that employment for women may not recover to pre-pandemic levels until 2024, showing a much tougher journey both during and through the recovery of the pandemic.


    We recognize it can be challenging in these times doing what it takes to stop burnout related circumstances and balance workplace wellbeing. There can be limitations on what you can do as an employer, especially when additional pressures are outside the workplace.


    However, working with us as a partner, we can help you address the root causes of burnout at the individual level: the heightened anxiety, chronic fatigue, brain fog, performance issues triggered by destructive beliefs, inner conflicts and unresolved trauma and emotions.


    In tandem, we'll begin to help address and re-evaluate the root causes of workplace burnout specific for your impacted employees:

    • Fairness
    • Management Workload
    • Role Clarity
    • Communication and Manager Support
    • Reasonable Time
    Returning back to work, we will help realize additional organizational and individual capacity, help establish new boundaries, effective communication training and better optimize workflows and business processes to ensure the wellbeing of your employees and surrounding teams while level-setting win-win performance outcomes.

Self-sabotage will become an open risk, where the collateral damage is the company.
