It was only this week that I finally realised that the concept of energy vampire (someone who drains other people’s emotional energy) not only applies to people but also to companies, organisations and indeed public services.

I’ve been working with people recently whose employers have basically sucked the energy out of them in return for cash. Burn out is the inevitable result and this not only has a massive cost for them personally but also for society at large. Such employers are transferring the cost to us all.

Questions need to be asked. So, is your employer an energy vampire? Does the environment in which you work nourish you? If not, what needs to change? Baby steps are better than none at all.
