MEETINGS & EVENTS

January 19th 6-7pm, 2023 (online) event. We have a very special guest speaker, Janice Litvin, an award-winning corporate wellness speaker, to kick off 2023. Janice will discuss a very important topic that we all struggle with in cybersecurity "Professional Burnout". Please RSVP early to iscnorthbaychapter@gmail.com.

As an award-winning corporate wellness speaker, certified virtual presenter, and SHRM Recertification Provider, Janice Litvin wants to help as many people as possible take care of their physical and mental health, including teaching them to manage stress to prevent burnout, fall in love with fitness, and eat healthier. In these ways, she is helping people change their lives. She has developed unique strategies to maximize engagement in workplace wellness and has also developed a stress management methodology.

It has been well-documented that stress is plaguing the American workforce to the tune of $125 – $190 billion in healthcare costs. In a Gallup report Employee Burnout: Causes and Cures, “employee burnout is a symptom of modern workplaces that are increasingly fast-paced, complex and demanding.”

The World Health Organization has recognized burnout as an illness, “an occupational syndrome caused by chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed.” The impact of all this stress is reduced retention, lower productivity, disengaged workers, and increased absenteeism.

Janice will be talking about her Banish Burnout techniques and how to better manage stress in the workplace. She will go over how to recognize signs of burnout, how to interrupt negative thoughts and replace them with positive messages, and how to set healthy boundaries at work.
