Workplace Values and Burnout Collide Because Values Don't Match Real World Actions
Workplace values and burnout - when do you know that posted workplace values don't match reality? When the actions of leadership don’t match their words. There is a disconnect between what is said and what is done or lived out by the senior leadership.
Great policies and procedures may be in place, but really only appear as lip-service. It may be very well-meaning but when it comes to meeting deadlines or production expectations or whatever else that creates a pinch, personal and family values may be the first thing to be jettisoned.
This may work its way up and down the responsibility ladder, having all levels of management coping with stress. For some it will be a key factor that leads to workplace burnout.
