The WHO defines burnout as ‘a syndrome conceptualised as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed. It is characterized by three dimensions: -feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion; -increased mental distance from one’s job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one’s job; -reduced professional efficacy. The Reintegrate Wellbeing project supports workers and employers in acquiring understanding and awareness of the problem, of how to detect it, tackle it, and on how to recover. It will provide soft skills necessary to recognise and face the problem, to re-gain self-confidence and motivation, and help design better organisational practices leading to healthier work environments. It will do so by providing a tailored and modular curriculum, direct support from mentors, and encounter between workers and employers, favouring re-integration in the labour market.
