The burnout epidemic

· Modellers Miscellany

Book & webinar // The burnout epidemic

Burnout is a continuing problem in the finance profession and one which many modellers experience. Transactions are demanding, and when the model is at the heart of the deal, it can be hard to avoid long hours and weekend working. 

In her new book, The Burnout Epidemic, workplace expert Jennifer Moss challenges current corporate approaches to burnout. She argues that existing wellness strategies can help, but that meditation apps and fitness challenges don’t get to the root of the issue. What's more, emphasizing individual self-care unfairly blames the victim.

Jennifer is hosting a webinar on September 20th to discuss burnout and what leaders can do to combat it. Register here.
