In a survey based on a database of one million office workers on the Internet, 61% of office workers felt pressured, and nearly two-thirds were uninterested in work.
Another set of data released by China Human Resources Development Network shows that nearly 50% of job burners have not been employed for more than 4 years.
Burnout seems to have become a common problem in modern society, spreading around people.

The survey shows that 27% of people have more severe emotional failure; 61% of the workplace feel that they have a lot of work pressure and are exhausted after work.
Xiao Du, who has worked in a foreign company for three years, told reporters that she now relies on two days of travel every month to reduce stress.
“But no matter in which city, all I want is work.
So I recently resigned, intending to completely relax for six months.
“Cynical disrespect means deliberately keeping a distance between itself and the work object, adopting an indifferent and neglectful attitude towards the work object and the environment, and perfunctory work.
Yan Jianjian said that in psychology, this is also called “depersonalization.”
In the survey, nearly two-thirds of people are becoming less and less interested in work and are skeptical of the meaning of work.
Decreased personal achievement refers to the tendency to negatively evaluate yourself, accompanied by a decline in work ability experience and achievement experience.
The results of this survey are somewhat comforting. 74% of people rated themselves highly, and only about 4% felt that they had little sense of accomplishment at work.
Experts divided job burnout into three levels: low, medium, and high according to how much they had the above performances.

A survey by the China Human Resources Development Network shows that nearly 50% of job burners have participated in work for less than 4 years.
After 5 years of work, the burnout index decreased significantly. After 16 years of work, the degree of burnout was reduced to a minimum.
The survey also showed that 35% of people under the age of 25 experienced burnout, followed by those aged 25-35.
And changing jobs is a typical manifestation of job burnout. Xiao Chen, who has been working for less than a year, said: “It’s really unbelievable that our parents can spend a lifetime in a unit!
After my classmates graduated, they basically changed jobs.
According to the “Shanghai Laborer’s Occupational Mobility Analysis Report” released by the Shanghai Employment Promotion Center, compared with other age groups, young people under the age of 30 have the shortest occupational mobility cycle, averaging less than one and a half years.Change jobs.
“This change is related to the overall atmosphere of society.
“Dong Yang, an associate professor at the School of Psychology at Southwest University, said that first of all, modern people value money too much, and many people choose a job not out of interest.
Coupled with increasing competition and work pressure, they will soon be physically and mentally exhausted.
Second, the impact of the environment.
Yan Jianjian said that in the past, people rarely changed jobs, and most people wanted to hold an “iron rice bowl” for a lifetime.
But now more and more people are changing jobs, “holding the iron rice bowl” in some people’s eyes even become “incompetent” performance.
“People are susceptible to the influence of those around them. Once someone burns out, they will inevitably affect themselves.
