The PBT is an extremely practical burnout prevention tool. Firstly, it makes it possible to carry out preventative analyses, and secondly it produces high value-added information both for employees (individual approach) and employers (institutional approach) within the organisation. Only by using a joined-up approach of this type is it possible to create an effective burnout prevention policy.

Preparation

In practice, the first stage of the PBT process is setting up the questionnaire within the organisation’s structure. We place a particular emphasis on the partnerships developed with the Human Resources and Risk Prevention Committees at every one of our clients. We take care to ensure that each of the following steps is properly organised prior to the start of each run: tailoring the questionnaire to suit the profile and size of the organisation and the nature of its business, ensuring that all respondents are invited in a way which respects our privacy policy, recovery policy, session login process, etc.

Collection of responses

Once this internal planning has been completed, the questionnaires are ready to be sent to all employees of the organisation. The questionnaires are “cloud based”, accessible via a PC, tablet or smartphone, thus allowing each individual user to choose the setting which suits him/her best. In companies, completing the PBT test takes just 20 to 30 minutes. A database collects all the encrypted responses and provides output corresponding to each of the two the PBT test approaches: individual and institutional.

Individual approach

The individual approach involves the distribution of a confidential personalised report which clearly states the burnout risk diagnosis and the reasons behind it. Individuals facing difficulties are offered the option of contacting our network of certified experts, who can take preventative action without the employee taking time off work.

Institutional approach

The institutional approach is based on the consolidation and aggregation of all responses throughout the organisation. Using this, our powerful calculation engine produces an overall burnout risk exposure score, as well as a comprehensive report, including risk mapping. Risk prevention committees can then use this as a basis for developing an effective prevention policy, based on reliable and precise observations. It must be remembered that the confidentiality of results and anonymity of the respondents are completely guaranteed when using the institutional approach.

The pillars of an effective preventative approach

This combination of two approaches is unique to the PBT. First and foremost, they make it possible to reduce the incidence of burnout, as at-risk individuals are identified at an early stage using a questionnaire rigorously designed for this purpose. They also enable the development of risk prevention policies tailored to the specific risk detected in each organisation.
