BOIT – Burnout prevention training for team leaders and managers

Data on the European level show an increasing number of occupational diseases in the European countries. Because of the ever increasing demands in current work places and organizations, burnout is also a continuous research topic in international research. The current focus of international research is on burnout prevention, but also on positive outcomes of demanding work conditions (engagement). The goal of this European research project is the development of a burnout prevention program for team leaders and managers. The prevention program focuses on the transfer of basic knowledge about burnout to team leaders and managers. Managers will be sensitized to recognize burnout signs in their employees and to respond adequately to these signs. A pilot program will be developed and implemented in six member countries. The program will be evaluated within this research project.
