Podcast: The rise of employee stress & burnout risks – is it just a lockdown problem?

11 March 2021 2 min read

There is no shortage of coverage on the fact that stress and burnout in the workplace are on the rise, and most of this points to the changes in our lives and our work as a direct result of the COVID pandemic. But is this only because lockdown is resulting in us all being more stressed? Or does it go beyond this, and has lockdown only served to uncover that we weren’t really paying attention to existing causes of stress in the first place?

In collaboration with our partners Doctorcare Anywhere, join Clare Corlett and a panel of healthcare experts as we explore what stress is and challenge some of the thoughts around what might be causing it.
