Rationale

The European Working Conditions Survey highlighted that occupational illnesses associated with psychological stress are on the rise throughout the EU member states. The BOIT project deals with the burnout syndrome - an occupational disease which is characterised by emotional, mental and physical exhaustion.

The aim of this project is to sensitise managers for the subject burnout in order to prevent working situations that can lead to burnout. Managers (especially of the middle level, such as team leaders, project managers etc.) will get trained to recognize burnout signals among their staff at an early stage and to react on it.
