Many of us experience work overload at some point or another. Because of the current challenging economic climate, the need to remain competitive has assumed a sense of urgency that cause employees to feel that more is expected of them. As a result, they often take on tasks that fall outside the scope of their duties, put in extra hours or try to achieve more in less time. This can lead to an increase in stress, both physical and cognitive, and neglect of healthy habits.
Join us at [email protected] for a four-hour morning workshop to arrive at an understanding of the physical and cognitive effects of work overload, the risk factors, signs and symptoms, and current strategies for dealing with work overload. We will discuss the scientific aspects of work overload as revealed in current research, as well as work overload in the tertiary education environment.
