Professional Burnout And Disengagement In The A E Industry: What If They’re Right?

Over the past three decades A/E firms have faced tremendous changes in the make-up of their workforces, the structure of their workplaces, the markets they serve, and the technology they use. And the tempo for change is accelerating.

Over the past 10 years alone, we have seen a great recession packed with long hours for surviving staff, followed by a great boom producing more work than people. At the same time, progress has erased many traditional forms of practice and staff are more proactive and informed than ever before.
