Burnout is (still) on the rise—especially among young workers and women.

Mar 15 2023

Burnout is (still) on the rise—especially among young workers and women. Work-related burnout has reached an all-time high since spring 2021, according to research from Future Forum, which surveyed over 10,000 full-time desk-based workers in six countries, including the U.S. and the U.K. The study found that over 40% of respondents reported burnout, a new record since Future Forum began measuring work burnout in May 2021. But 18-to-29-year-olds and women are even more likely to say they’re experiencing the issue at 48% and 46%, respectively. YPulse previously reported that the pandemic exacerbated burnout among young people, leading to The Great Resignation, among other cultural shifts. At that time, we also found that young females were significantly more burned out than young males due to disparities in household chores, childcare, and work conditions. Our recent Mental Health report suggests that this is still the case: 68% of young women say they constantly feel stressed out compared to 54% of males, and 76% say “I often feel overwhelmed” compared to 60% of males.
