A large proportion of today's workforce finds itself coping with major responsibilities at home as well as rising expectations and demands on the job. The combination of work and family demands often leads to time pressure and conflict. As a result, a growing number of employees in today's organisations are suffering from burnout, a stress syndrome characterised by emotional exhaustion, depersonalisation and diminished personal accomplishment. Burnout has consequences for family outcomes, including diminished positive affect, increased marital conflicts, and feelings of stress among family members. Effects on work outcomes have also been reported, such as diminished work performance and organisational commitment and increased absenteeism levels. In response to this problem, a broad array of research has focused on factors that reduce burnout, labelled as social support. This new book gathers the latest research from around the globe in this field.
