Accepting workers as whole humans - that we come to work with skills and capabilities and contributions, desires and goals, but also vulnerabilities and frailties and needs. An acceptance that we struggle by the mere fact of existance.

Recognising that mental and physical health are on a continuum - that healthy bodies supported by adequate time for rest, education about burnout and being proactive in its prevention, access to decent food, perhaps even providing counselling services.

Our organisations are a reflection of the culture at large, but there are pockets of enlightened employers that can help support you, so keep looking for them.
