Do you find yourself staring blankly at your computer screen all day? Do you spend your afternoons sending messages to friends on the internet? Does your job give you no satisfaction at all? Are you constantly tired and lethargic? If so, you could be suffering not from burnout but from boreout, which is fast becoming the new office epidemic. Boreout! explores the causes of demotivation in the workplace including boredom, disinterest in the job and the absence of a stimulating challenge. Boreout has become widespread in offices around the world, but the problem is only now being recognized by employers. In this insightful new book, the authors bring to light this growing problem and show employees and employers how to recognize boreout and avoid its consequences. Whether you are an employee suffering from this draining condition, or an employer desperate to save your staff from the boreout trap, this book is essential reading.
