This report looks at the extent of burnout experienced by workers in the EU, based on national research.

As a starting point, the report sets out to consider whether burnout is viewed as a medical or occupational disease.It then examines the work determinants associated with burnout and looks at the effects of burnout, including psychosocial and physical work factors, work intensity and work organisation. It also reviews national strategies and policies regarding this issue, the involvement of the social partners in the current debate, as well as preventive actions currently in place.
