Burnout or Build up: Mental Health in the Workplace

The modern worker is feeling the pressure of always being on, increasingly tense political climates, juggling side-gigs and striving to keep some semblance of a work-life balance, all while competing against machines for their jobs. As a new generation rises in the workforce, how are these stresses impacting their mental health? In this unscripted “fishbowl” style session, audience members will interact with PhD’s, HR practitioners and executive panelists while they dig into new data released for the first time on the SXSW stage discussing what the most toxic cultures are today and what employers and employees alike can do to make the future of work a successful and healthier environment for all.

Programming descriptions are generated by participants and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of SXSW.
