Increased workload and commitments can lead to increased stress that can result in feeling burnt out. This module looks at the impact of increased workloads after an organisation restructure.
The module highlights the difficulties of managing multiple projects and the conflict created for employees trying to perform their job well. Workers learn about burnout, stress management and are provided with coping strategies that they can use to reduce their stress immediately.
Allowing stress to build up has long-term detrimental effects on health and well-being. It is important to manage new work expectations in light of current workloads and abilities. It is also important to speak up when the load becomes overwhelming.
