Digital burnout is a specific type of burnout caused by the prolonged and/or excessive use of digital devices.
It describes feelings of fatigue, frustration, or apathy resulting from prolonged stress, overwork, or intense activity, from a prolonged or inappropriate use of occupational, digital technologies.
In summary, it describes the physical and mental exhaustion caused from excessive digital activity.
The Digital Burnout Barometer is a tool that can help you identify your personal risk of digital burnout. It will help you to examine your digital behaviours and habits, your current performance and experiences at work, so that you can ascertain whether you are at risk of digital burnout.
No identifying data is collected so please rest assured the results are completely anonymous. Data from your team/organisation’s assessment will be aggregated and analysed and stored on a secure site.
You’ll receive your individual results in a downloadable PDF that you can keep for your own personal reference. Your colleagues’ data will be aggregated and analysed and Dr Kristy will use this data to inform and tailor her keynote or workshop for your workplace. A formal written report can also be provided to your organisation.
