Guthrie D, Leonard L, Addiss, DG. The Hilton Prize Coalition Employee Wellbeing Project. Decatur, Georgia: Task Force for Global Health and Heifer International, April 23, 2019. 

The stresses inherent in global health and humanitarian work contribute to burnout, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder. To better understand employee wellbeing among the recipients of the Conrad Hilton Humanitarian Prize, The Task Force for Global Health and Heifer International collaborated with anthropologist Deirdre Guthrie, at the University of Notre Dame, to conduct a survey and interview CEOs, Human Resource leaders, and front-line staff. Findings indicate that work-related stress is ubiquitous and burnout is not uncommon. The report summarizes project findings and provides resources for employee wellbeing and resilience.
