According to the annual Women in the Workplace report from McKinsey & Co. and LeanIn.Org, women in the workplace dealt with the brunt of burnout in 2021.
Both men and women have been found to experience burnout over the past two years, mainly due to overwork, lack of childcare support, and more. However, women were more pressured to balance work and home responsibilities.
The gap between women and men reporting being burned out has nearly doubled since last year. The survey of over 65,000 North American professionals saw 42% of women and 35% of men reporting burnout this year, compared to 32% of women and 28% of men in 2020.
