According to a recent study from the Yale Center of Emotional Intelligence, one out of every five employees reported high engagement and high burnout. With Gallup reporting that burned-out employees are 63% more likely to take a sick day and 2.6 times as likely to actively seek a new position, having an emotionally stressed and exhausted workforce is costly.

In this episode of HR Break Room, Liz Fosslien, co-author of the recently released book No Hard Feelings, joins hosts Caleb Masters and Chelsea Justice to discuss:

  • how employees’ emotions influence an organization’s culture and impact the bottom line
  • the role burnout plays in disengagement and high turnover
  • why the physical work environment influences employees’ emotions
  • how HR can work with managers to create an emotionally healthy workplace
