That up to 71% of professionals experience burnout in their current job and 51% of people who burnout once will burnout again.

HOW ARE YOU DOING?

...and how is your team?

The Unlearn Burnout Assessment provides you with a comprehensive report based on your answers to the Assessment.

 

The Unlearn Burnout Report gives you 4 key insights on burnout risk factors + clear direction on how to recover from burnout and prevent relapse based on clinical research. 

 

Upon taking the Unlearn Burnout Assessment you will receive a comprehensive Report which outlines your:

✓ Degree of Burnout

✓ Psychological + Behavioural Risk Factors

✓ Risk of Stress Related Illness

✓ Areas of Growth Potential 

 

Beyond the typical burnout inventories, The Unlearn Burnout Report scores an individual based on the degree to which stress and overwork has led to burnout, and also provides a comprehensive overview of the behavioral patterns, psychological tendencies and personality traits which increase the likelihood of succumbing to burnout. 

 

Fortunately, our mental structures and emotional programs are not fixed. We can unlearn unsupportive behavioral patterns and relearn resilience boosting strategies to reduce our risk of burnout, enhance our recovery, and prevent relapse. The Unlearn Report outlines specific areas of potential growth for the individual, and is the only assessment on the market which includes this empowering information. 

 

Finally, the Unlearn Report indicates one’s risk of developing stress related illness such as anxiety, depression, cardiovascular disease, decreased cognitive function, physical decline and death. In the near future, you will be able to track these risks over time with the option of adding biomarker testing and the integration of our app-based Unlearn programs with wearable health technology.

~ It's a Fact ~

That burnout-related absenteeism tends to last for relatively long periods compared with other mental and physical health conditions

BURNOUT RECOVERY

Recovering from stress or burnout requires more than taking time off and getting a break from the daily workload - at home or in the office.

 

Beyond rest; true recovery and relapse prevention require that we unlearn the mental structures, emotional programming and behavioural strategies which make us succeptible to burnout in the first place.

 

We need to build ressilience.

 

~ High Cost ~

Poor mental health costs have risen by 16% costing UK employers up to £45 billion a year. 

 

Emotional stress is a major contributing factor to the six leading causes of death in the United States.

WE NEED MORE

Current burnout inventories are, in our humble opinion, either too narrow or lacking some major indicators of succeptibility to stress and burnout. We are missing a focus on early detection, rather than diagnostics once symptoms are impossible to ignore.

In the modern workplace, the capital (both human and monetary) connected to stress and burnout are no joke.

Through easy-to-access digital assessments we can map out the exact areas of growth within the key areas of  common behaviour patterns and personality traits that lead to stress and burnout. 

 

This empowers us to start strengthening the wellbeing of ourselves, our colleagues and employees way ahead of burnout occurring.

READ THE NERDY STUFF

NERDY STUFF

Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI)

The MBI is a psychological assessment instrument comprising 22 symptom items pertaining to occupational burnout. The original form of the MBI was developed the goal of assessing an individual's experience of burnout. The MBI measures three dimensions of burnout: emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and personal accomplishment. 

Bergen Burnout Inventory (BBI)

The Bergen Burnout Inventory, 9 items (BBI; Feldt et al., 2014) measures burnout in the work context (in all occupations), assessing 1. exhaustion at work (emotional component), 2. cynicism toward the meaning of work (cognitive component), and 3. the sense of inadequacy at work (behavioral component). ​

 

Copenhagen Burnout Inventory (CBI)

The CBI consists of three scales measuring; 1. personal burnout 2. work-related burnout, and 3. client-related burnout, for use in different domains.

 

OBJECTION:

The existing burnout inventories rate people based on their experience of exhaustion, detachment and decreased work efficacy. While the scoring does help identify whether a person is in burnout, they do not provide insights into why the person burns out.

 

Recent studies show that there are psychological personality traits that predispose people to experiencing burnout. In accordance with current inventories, the Unlearn Burnout Assessment can be used to diagnose burnout as well as highlight the traits and behaviors which can be targeted to prevent burnout, improve recovery and prevent relapse.
