A combination of factors make newsrooms more likely to burnout employees, and some of those same factors make this burnout difficult to counteract.

RTDNA wrote this week about what newsrooms can do about burnout, since the answers aren’t always obvious.

The article also suggests that managers have a role to play:

“Research has shown that a sense of community in the workplace and the availability of mentors decreases burnout. Managers and employers have a significant role to play in creating healthier workplaces that are free of harassment, value each team member and help people grow, not burn out.”
