As unemployment rates in the State of Texas are dropping, an interesting study puts a different perspective on work. Employees who stay at a job because they feel they have no other options are at an increased risk for job burnout.
Canadian Researchers studied more than 250 workers with an average age of 34 in various jobs. They found people with high self-esteem were the most affected by a perceived lack of job options. The team suggests that this may be because being stuck in a position doesn’t match the workers’ view of themselves as competent and important people.
These findings appear in the journal “Human Relations.”
The Mayo Foundation reports that Job Burnout is a type of stress that can affect your health and happiness. If you think you may be experiencing Job Burnout, consult with your medical or mental health provider. Some symps like irritability and lacking energy at work are also in line with other potential health issues.
