The supervisors/managers were becoming increasingly frustrated with the amount of employees calling out sick, taking extended leave, and the rising employee turnover rate.  This began to incur significant organizational costs.  


In addition to the three-part vILT training course presented, this infographic was created for employees to place in their personal work spaces to use as a quick reference guide (QRG).  This job aid accompanied a virtual instructor-led course on defining and recognizing the symptoms of burnout.


Employees reported that it was helpful to refer to the QRG in their personal workspaces as a reminder of their newly acquired knowledge regarding burnout.  Overall results indicated that stress and burnout management training was efficient on reducing stress and burnout symptoms in employees.  Furthermore, it was determined that burnout response training  would be beneficial for supervisors/managers.
