Burnout isn’t the norm, but it’s certainly common in today’s workplace. In polling conducted for Spherion Corp., 28 percent of American workers said they feel burnout on the job. Twenty-two percent termed themselves “neutral” on the matter, while 50 percent said they don’t feel burned out. (Whether their colleagues view them as burnt-out cases is another question.) The burnout rate was marginally higher for men (29 percent) than women (27 percent). Is it most severe among people who’ve been in the workplace the longest? On the contrary: It was below-average among workers age 50-64 (21 percent) and above average among the 18-24s (32 percent), 25-29s (33 percent) and 30-39s (34 percent).

If you haven’t run into your neighbors lately at the grocery story, maybe it’s because they weren’t there.
