This may be surprising, but workplace burnout can be closely related to addiction. The burnout syndrome is a job-related condition that gradually leads to physical, mental and emotional exhaustion.
Interestingly enough, the burnout syndrome primarily threatens people who are ambitious and devoted to their work. But total submission of one’s self to work may result in lacking positive feedback, waning enthusiasm, and decreasing inspiration. A conflict arises between the idealised image of work and the actual reality, which causes frustration. This requires additional efforts which are, however, rarely successful; other facets of one’s life are neglected. Full apathy is the most critical phase of the burnout syndrome; it may extend to areas of life other than work. Health problems and issues in one’s private life may arise as well.
Workplace stress and excess pressure may lead to feelings of helplessness and incompetence over time. Motivation is lost, and performance is degraded. Meanwhile, the work itself loses its appeal and becomes monotonous. Workplace relationships wane as they fall victim to burnout; conflicts start to abound. The individual’s needs outside work are neglected. It’s easy to see that this is related to work addiction.
Even though a faulty organisational culture and excessive expectations are among the reasons for burnout, some causes are attributable to the individual suffering from the syndrome.
