AI algorithms analyze employee workloads in real-time to detect stress and tiredness. To avoid burnout, the AI can suggest workload modifications or breaks for late-night workers.

AI can identify burnout risks from historical data and employee behavior. This allows for proactive Stress Management and work-life balance.
