Forrester’s Future Of Work Survey, 2023, reveals the variety in how burnout is experienced. A full 32% of the workforce are Champions (highly engaged employees who experience little burnout) — a dramatic increase from 21% in 2022. Just 19% of the workforce falls into the Tired Rockstar category, down from a whopping 32% in 2022. These workers, while highly engaged, also find themselves burned out. Another 30% of employees are considered Coasters, low-engagement workers with low burnout and low commitment. The final 19% are Red-Zone Workers; they’re burned out, disengaged, and at high risk of leaving the organization.
