Stress has a sneaky way of turning into burnout before we can recognize the symptoms and take steps to protect our mental wellness. Can cutting-edge science help us regain some of our lost calm?

 

For that answer, we turned to a leading scientist.

 

Astrophysicist, author and all-around science ambassador Neil deGrasse Tyson, Ph.D., visits the HR Break Room® to take on the myth of multitasking. Multitasking can lower productivity, increase the amount of time needed to complete a task, create stress and lead to burnout. We often think of multitasking within the context of work; however, this applies to all areas of life.

 

Technology is often seen as the cause of excessive multitasking in our busy lives, but these modern tools may also provide the solution as we look for ways to cope in these times of information saturation.

 

Tyson discusses ways to identify the onset of burnout and proven strategies for reducing stress and recovering the ability to think clearly and effectively.

Join Steve Boese, HR Technology Conference chair, on a journey through the world of HR automation. We’ll address the fundamental questions around the concept and how it redefines the employee experience.
