Overworked and Overwhelmed? Build Your Burnout Prevention Toolkit


Brought to you by UHA Health Insurance and Hawai‘i Health at Work Alliance, in partnership with Hawaii Employers Council and Hawaii Business Magazine.

Newsflash – burnout isn’t new! The COVID-19 pandemic has been a wakeup call on how we deal with our own wellness and the chronic stressors many of us experience. Whether dealing with changes at work or changes to your child or elder care situations, the demands being placed on us are exceeding the resources available to us. Left unchecked, burnout can wreak havoc on our health, happiness, relationships and job performance. In order to catch burnout and combat it, each of us needs to recognize that we cannot live a full life without a healthy body, mind and spirit.

On the September 29 event, our speakers presented tools and strategies for individuals and leaders to better understand and combat burnout by meeting three basic needs: autonomy, mastery, and relatedness.
