    Our company used PMAC for various bespoke training sessions and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. Communication was excellent and efficient, and the sessions themselves were incredibly helpful, engaging and enjoyable.

    The Neurodiversity in the Workplace session I attended was brilliant. Since my son received his Autism diagnosis, I have attend lots of training, webinars and conferences. This session was by far the most informative. It was delivered with enthusiasm and by someone with lived experience. I would highly recommend this session.

    PMAC wrote two articles on mental health issues for unpaid carers which were published on our website and in our magazine, Carers News. We were delighted with the quality of the both the pieces, particularly how they related to our target audience, and the positive response they received.

    I approached PMAC for some training earlier this year to improve my ability to support our staff members. The training was absolutely brilliant. They phoned me in advance to get an idea of what exactly I needed, and how they could best tailor it to our business/ individuals. This really helped to personalise the experience - I've had so many instances of generic training in the past - it was great that they considered what elements they could specifically touch on in order to make the training bespoke for us. On the day itself, we did virtual training (although in person was also an option). The quality of the video/audio was great. The trainer (Hayley) was absolutely wonderful. She had prepared an extremely thorough and engaging presentation for us. The training lasted for 4 hours but had a couple of breaks in which did help. It was great to have training from someone who has such a well rounded knowledge of the issues we wanted to learn about, and her delivery was excellent - she was open to answering uncomfortable questions - and encouraged us to be open and not shy away from what could have been quite delicate issues. She then followed up the training with the power point, and assured us that we could call for help again if needed. 10/10 experience - would very very highly recommend! Thank you Hayley and Peter for all of your help!

    Hayley is a really engaging presenter and the two ‘Introduction to Neurodivergence’ webinars that she ran for us were excellent. The content was super interesting and informative, and it was a great opportunity to open up conversations in the team about neurodivergence. The feedback from everyone (myself included!) was really positive and I’d definitely recommend PMAC to anybody looking for mental health training.

    What is Burnout?

    With our lives arguably being the busiest they have ever been and our work being more and more demanding, workplace burnout is becoming more rife. Our constantly connected world means that employees are always switched on and able to work from remote locations. This puts increasing pressure and strain on staff mental health and wellbeing.

    Burnout is defined as having no energy or enthusiasm to work, due to being exhausted from a workload that is too great. Burnout costs UK businesses in excess of £45billion every year due to lost work days, long-term ill health and decreased productivity and efficiency. It is very easy for staff to fall into a trap of overworking themselves to meet tight deadlines and company demands. Unfortunately, just like an overworked engine, staff will eventually suffer catastrophic failure – burnout! Burnout symptoms can be identified as; feeling demotivated, feeling helpless and trapped, detachment, loss of satisfaction and cynical/negative feelings.

    Burnout is a state of emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion caused by prolonged stress or frustration. It is a type of psychological distress that occurs when a person feels overwhelmed, emotionally drained, and unable to meet the demands of their job or life. It often results from long-term exposure to performance pressure, lack of control, or changing demands in the workplace.

    Burnout is a very real and serious condition that can have a negative impact on an individual’s well-being, productivity, and overall mental health. It can manifest itself in different ways, including fatigue, irritability, feelings of helplessness, depression, and anxiety. It can also manifest itself physically, such as headaches, digestive issues, and muscle tension.

    Burnout can be caused by a variety of factors, including working long hours, feeling overwhelmed by workload, having unrealistic expectations placed on oneself, working in an environment with low job satisfaction, and feeling a lack of control over one’s work.

    It is important to recognize the signs and symptoms of burnout and seek help if needed. Mental health professionals can help individuals manage their stress levels and develop coping strategies to prevent burnout from occurring. With the right support and interventions, burnout can be prevented and managed.

    Identifying the Signs & Symptoms of Burnout

    Burnout is a state of mental and physical exhaustion caused by prolonged stress. It can be caused by a variety of factors, from an overload of work to a lack of job satisfaction or feeling of being overworked. Burnout can be difficult to identify, so it’s important to recognize the signs and symptoms early on.

    Burnout can manifest in both physical and mental symptoms, and identifying these can be the first step in taking action to improve your mental health.

    Physical Symptoms of Burnout

    The physical symptoms of burnout can range from mild to severe. Common physical symptoms include:

    • Fatigue
    • Headaches
    • Insomnia
    • Loss of appetite
    • Muscle tension
    • Frequent colds or illnesses

    Mental Symptoms of Burnout

    The mental symptoms of burnout can include:

    • Feeling overwhelmed or unable to cope with stress
    • Feeling disconnected from your work
    • Loss of motivation
    • Negative thoughts or feelings, such as frustration, anger, and apathy
    • Withdrawal from social activities
    • Poor concentration
    • Feeling that your achievements are insignificant

    If you’re feeling any of the above symptoms, it’s important to take a step back and assess the situation. Taking some time off to relax and recharge can help to reduce the symptoms of burnout. It’s also important to speak to a professional if you’re feeling overwhelmed or struggling to cope.

    At PMAC, we offer a range of burnout training courses to help individuals and businesses identify and manage signs of burnout. Our courses are designed to help participants understand the signs and symptoms of burnout, as well as providing them with the skills and knowledge to manage their mental health and wellbeing.

    Benefits of Professional Burnout Training

    Burnout is a serious condition that can have a major impact on your physical, mental and emotional health. Professional burnout training can help you and your team recognize the warning signs of burnout and take action to prevent it.

    Burnout prevention training can help you identify and address the root causes of burnout, such as excessive workloads, unrealistic expectations, and lack of job satisfaction. It can also equip you to create and maintain healthy work environments, encourage work-life balance, and use stress management techniques.

    Burnout training can also help you develop personal and organizational resilience. This involves teaching your team to cope with challenges and setbacks in a constructive way and to be mindful of their own mental health. Through burnout prevention training, your team can become more aware of the signs of burnout, be better able to manage their stress levels, and have the tools to cope with job-related challenges.

    The benefits of professional burnout training extend beyond the workplace. Through burnout prevention training, you can equip your team with the knowledge and skills to maintain good mental health. This can result in improved job performance, increased productivity, and greater job satisfaction.

    At PMAC, our burnout prevention training is designed to provide you and your team with the knowledge and skills to recognize, prevent, and manage burnout. We provide comprehensive training that covers the signs and symptoms of burnout, the causes of burnout, and how to best manage stress levels and build resilience.

    How can Burnout be Avoided?

    Burnout is an increasingly common problem in the workplace. It occurs when an individual is overwhelmed by the demands of their job and is unable to cope with the stressors they face. It can lead to a range of physical and mental health symptoms and can cause serious disruption to both an individual’s personal and professional life. Luckily, there are a number of strategies that can be employed to help prevent burnout and help individuals maintain their mental and physical health.

    Address workload issues

    One of the main causes of burnout is an excessive workload. To prevent burnout, it’s important to ensure that workloads are manageable and that employees are not being asked to do more than they can reasonably handle. By providing employees with the resources they need to get their work done and ensuring that they are not overloaded with tasks, employers can help reduce the risk of burnout.

    Encourage breaks

    Taking regular breaks throughout the day is an important part of avoiding burnout. It can be helpful to schedule regular breaks into the day, such as a lunch break or a break for coffee or tea. Breaks can help employees to recharge, refocus and be more productive when they return to their tasks.

    Foster a positive work environment

    Having a positive work environment is key to preventing burnout. Employers should ensure that their workplace is supportive and that employees feel valued and listened to. This can be achieved by providing regular feedback, rewarding good work and creating opportunities for employees to socialise.

    Invest in mental health support

    Providing mental health support to employees is another effective way to prevent burnout. Employers can look into offering mental health counselling, workshops or seminars to support employees’ wellbeing. They can also provide resources such as books, websites or apps to help employees manage stress and anxiety.

    Promote work-life balance

    Encouraging employees to maintain a healthy work-life balance can also help to prevent burnout. This could involve allowing employees to take regular vacations or encouraging them to take time off when needed. Employers should also avoid setting unrealistic deadlines, which can increase stress and lead to burnout.

    By employing these long-term strategies, employers can help to reduce the risk of burnout and create a healthier and more productive workplace.
