WFTX - Are you on a first-name basis with the office clean-up crew? Do you feel compelled to reply to non-urgent emails after work hours?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may have fallen victim to office martyrdom.

In today’s post-recession economy, employees are often asked to do more with less – and some workers will go to great lengths to show they’re willing to sacrifice more than their peers in an effort to get noticed and prove their value. 

If you fear you may be at risk of falling victim to office martyrdom, there are ways to prevent it.

Don’t over-commit yourself.
Make your boss aware of your work/Provide status reports.
Focus on the positive.
Take some time for yourself.
Seek help.
Celebrate your wins.
