Burnout and death from overwork have recently been an important issue to faculties of universities in both Taiwan and Mainland China during recent years. However, there is neither ample discussion on such issue based in Taiwan and Mainland China nor are sufficient solutions provided to address it. In this study, we illustrate recent phenomenon of faculties' burnout and death from work at universities in Taiwan and Mainland China. We then introduce double-recovery process along with explaining the notion how such process benefits the reduction of burnout. Finally, we through job re-design perspective provide three pragmatic solutions that benefits faculties' implementation of double-recovery process as a strategical thinking for decision makers of universities in both Taiwan and Mainland China to resolve their faculties' burnout and death from overwork situation.
