Is your organization burnt out?

January 24, 2022

Employee burnout is very alarming and a persistent problem in today’s workplace. When Covid-19 hit, the numbers skyrocketed, leading to many employees leaving the workforce. In Europe, 46% of employees claim to be at least somewhat burnt out, and this number is probably underrepresented [1].

In order to fight burnout, employers need to be aware of the impact it’s having on their organization. As Peter Drucker said, “If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it.”

EMOTAI is introducing a FREE burnout assessment tool. This tool was developed by Professor Hans De Witte and Professor Wilmar Schaufeli [2]. It’s a quick 5-min survey, scientifically validated, and a valuable tool to use for estimating the level of burnout symptoms.

How does it work?

All you have to do is go to our Burnout Assessment Tool sign up page and fill out the required information. Afterwards, you will receive an email with a link to the form that you can share with your organization. This form is completely anonymous. We don’t ask for any information that can be traced back to the employee.

After 1 week, you will receive a report indicating the percentage of your organization at low, medium and high risk of burnout.

To make it easier and also because “burnout” might have a negative connotation, we also provide an email template for you to share with your organization:
