Teaser: Kelly with stack of boxes and packing tape
Super: A better way to deal with burn out.
Kelly: [Open on Kelly as she is wrapping up the show]…and remember, good health starts with good mental health. See you next time on Simply Put! [closes her laptop, Kelly starts to take off her lapel microphone]
Off camera: Wait, wait, Kelly, Kelly—Hold on. We have one more caller. He says you know him. It’s…uh, Dan. Wanna take it?
Kelly: Absolutely. Hey Dan!
[Cut to Dan. He’s on Facetime walking into work. He’s wearing a vest and name tag with regional distribution manager on it and a khaki work shirt.]
Dan: Hey Kelly, sorry it’s so late—but I’m really glad I caught you.
Kelly: No problem, Dan. You’re working late…?
Dan: Yeah, the company’s been really short-staffed lately. We’re all working extra shifts to try and help cover each other. [Overhead PA: Dan! Dan in inventory! Line 5!] And we can’t get anything shipped on time—customers are furious. I’m so exhausted—I don’t know how much longer I can keep this up.
Kelly: Oh, I’m sorry Dan. But, if it’s any consolation, lots of people are in the same situation. A recent poll showed that more than three-quarters [Holds up a stat: 76%] of employed Americans report they are currently experiencing worker burnout,1 which sounds a lot like you.
Dan: [Someone hands Dan a clipboard to sign] Yeah, I think most people here could probably relate. [Hands it back, “Thanks”]
Kelly: You know, Dan, I think you could use a little extra help.
Dan: [Walking, drinking coffee] You can say that again. We need a lot of help around here.
Kelly: Actually, I mean with your mental and emotional health. Did you know that, in a recent industry workplace poll, 76% of respondents reported at least one symptom of a mental health condition in the past year?2 That’s why more and more employers are turning to Spring Health, through Guardian, personalized mental wellness benefits for you and your family.
