Summary

This article discusses burnout as a pervasive, systemic issue rather than an individual issue. The article provides evidence of the pervasiveness of burnout in tech companies as support for its claim that leaders should be responsible for addressing employee burnout. The article warns against shifting high performance to the accepted minimum performance standard and suggests building a culture that values employee above workaholism. The article concludes that change should begin with the leader since the leader has the power to influence culture and redistribute workloads to reduce systemic burnout.

Keywords Burnout, workaholism, leadership, performance standards, organizational culture, heavy workload
