A satisfied and committed employee often translates to a productive employee. While it is well recognized that positive organizational attitudes and behaviors add value to organizations, having a disengaged or alienated employee can also be detrimental for both the employer and employee. This webinar will focus on looking at a few of these negative experiences in relation to work, specifically that of burnout, cynicism and work alienation. Are these separate constructs and experiences or different sides of the same coin? What are some of the organizational predictors and consequences of burnout and alienation? These are some of the questions that this webinar will seek to address.
