No, but they are very closely linked and the signs and symptoms can mimic each other.
Stress is something we all deal with on a daily basis, and a small amount of stress can actually be motivating. When stress becomes too much however, and it’s prolonged over a period of time, it can become extremely dangerous to health and productivity. In addition, when stress is prolonged and other factors come into play, such as personal issues and problems at work, burnout looms on the horizon.
Stress leads to burnout, that’s really the easiest way to describe it.
Keeping a handle on your stress levels is vital if you want to remain healthy and happy in the workplace, and avoid the rather serious health complications which can arise as a result of prolonged stress on the mind and body. Employers can help their staff by having an open door policy, ensuring work is fairly distributed, and allowing staff to use breakout spaces and perhaps office dividers when they feel they need a quick time out, or to really knuckle down and concentrate on a task.
Focusing on health and wellbeing is also a good option for employers, so looking into active working methods, such as stand height tables, and fostering a team environment which allows everyone to feel supported, rather than feeling like they have to deal with everything alone.
Employers at their executive desks should also be sympathetic and supportive if an employee approaches them to talk about stress and burnout. Most employees are nervous of doing this, but it is far better to have that open door policy and talk things through, than allow the situation continue building to an unhealthy crescendo of burnout.
