Exhaustion is reflected in the data from a new report by Limeade, and the implications should worry employers. No one, regardless of gender, can keep this up indefinitely.

New data shows that employers are failing to address the problem—whether that’s down to a lack of awareness or a “not our problem” mentality, companies are missing an opportunity to support employees and strengthen their organizations.
