Whether you are in your dream job or simply working a position to make ends meet, workplace burnout is inevitable.
If you’re not careful, it can sneak in, grab you and sink you down into the depths of unhappiness.
And while there isn’t a cookie-cutter solution to alleviate the feelings that accompany burnout, there are ways to combat it, thus increasing job satisfaction.
Why not opt for the entrepreneurial route? Sure, it can be challenging and even sometimes lead to higher levels of stress, but in the end, the cost is worth the reward. Research suggests that a correlation exists between members of the self-employed workforce and lower levels of burnout.
The folks at The Office Club measured survey participants’ workplace burnout as well as overall job satisfaction to better understand these factors. Data collected from over 200 members of the U.S. workforce revealed some surprising points of view.
