Motivation also relates to the majority of employees getting burnt out. They either do not have enough persistence to finish the jobs day after day or they truly may be over worked.

It is argued that “emotions are motivational catalysts: feelings of helplessness, hopefulness, pride, and guilt that arise from attributions that influence subsequent behaviour” (Jarvis & Seifert, 2002).

High levels of work place stress and professional burnout continually affects nurses and other health care workers globally. This paper will explore this nursing issue by articulating the concepts of stress and professional burnout relative to the nursing profession. The term stress is defined as “a particular relationship between the person and the environment that is appraised by the person as taxing or as exceeding his or her resources and is endangering his or her well-being” (Wlodarczyk, & Lazarewicz, 2011 p.848).

The review concludes with an analysis of the subject arising from the selected peer reviewed studies to inform implications for further research and recommendations for future social work practice (SWP). The rationale for this review is to establish what current research suggests are the contributing factors for burnout, and how to this can be alleviated. The term ‘burnout’ is identified, as exhaustion resulting from excessive demands on energy and resources. It is a slow process of an accumulation of fatigue that occurs over time then leads to a state of exhaustion (Freudenberger and Pichelson, 1989).
Stress, depression, and anxiety in the workplace, as well as at home, are more predominant than ever (Vesely, 2012, para.4). However, the main causes from this come from being employed in today’s competitive and unstable workforce. In order to bring this paradox full circle, a certain type of benefits program has evolved over time to help businesses keep the employees they have.

First, I would like to address our current LTIR (Lost Time Injury & Illness Rate) and the steps to improve it. A number of the issues that have lead to an increase in the lost time injury and illness within the organization can be traced back to a lack of job satisfaction, motivation, and empowerment. Organizational behavior theories show job satisfaction has a direct relation to employee absenteeism as well as increased injury in the workplace. To combat this I would like to implement an “employee leadership program” where we appoint an employee on a rotational basis to help manage our LTIR program. This program will provide the employees a number of professional development opportunities to build skills, strengthen our core values, remove barriers and enhance trust among the leadership group and our employee base.
