Burnout is well defined in the literature as a state of emotional, mental, and physical exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress. In the tech industry, long hours, tight deadlines and a culture of being always connected can put a lot of pressure on people. All of this might easily lead to depression or burnout. While some companies do an effort to reduce the stress and offer a better work-life balance, it seems like there is still work to be done. According to a recent OSMI (Open Sourcing Mental Illness) survey, over 60% of tech workers believe that discussing a mental health disorder with their employer might have negative consequences. So what can we do better to help the people? And can anything positive come out from a burnout? This talk aims at bringing down some of the stigmata around occupational burnout and show that some good can come out of it.
