"Burnout is a work-related phenomenon. Organisations often go to solutions that require the individual to implement wellbeing practices outside of work. Whilst these aren't bad, they do fail to address the root cause of what may be putting employee's mental health at risk."

- Mark Oostergo, Chief Executive at Australian Psychological Services

"In times of uncertainty, role clarity becomes even more critical. Be clear in explaining what is expected, what needs to be done, how it needs to be done and what success looks like. If we don't create clarity, the risk is that people second guess themselves. They feel stretched and they can feel directionless. All of these things can start to lead to burnout, anxiety, overwhelm and stress."

- Raechel Gavin, Chief People Officer at Sonder
