Webinar: Burnout and Mental Wellbeing in the Workplace

Mental wellness has never been more relevant, and it's especially important to learn how to identify burnout. Drawing from decades of experience in recruitment and human resources, CEO and founder of Aspire Paul Farrer delivered a powerful webinar to hundreds of DMI members on how to recognize work-related burnout, with tips to reduce and cope with it.  

Attendees responded warmly to the webinar, with many thinking again about their own stress levels, or looking for ways to improve the work-life balance of themselves or their employees.

Additional Info

Paul talked about the case of "Lucy", an employee at Aspire who suffered burnout. He provided this follow up on what happened with Lucy.

She was encouraged to and did access their therapists and it was they who guided Lucy and only when she was ready to talk to us did she. One of the key areas we discovered was that she was working on her 2 days off. Trying to take and make calls when taking child to nursery (when allowed) or shops etc. She was anxious about not being available to candidates and her key client. With therapy for her and clear comms from us that she was only contracted for 3 days and clear comms to the client and Lucy is back in a great place. She was also able to square off other issues and continues to have sessions with her therapist.

“With so much info buzzing around online about mental health in the workplace, it’s difficult to know where to start and how to make sense of it all! Yet in that hour session I feel you covered the most important topics with those key stats and your colleague’s story, then concluded with some excellent advice and recommendations.” Freddie, UK
