STRESS IN THE WORKPLACE
Did you know that over 80% of people in the workplace today feel stressed as a result of their jobs? What's even more alarming is the staggering $300 billion lost annually on a global scale due to the reduction in productivity that occurs as a result of increasing stress levels.
Work place stress is on the rise. Many employees over work and experience burn out. They feel they are rushing against time trying to meet deadlines. Others feel undervalued and unappreciated. Due to technological advancement, they find they are connected to work even when not at work. They are unable to get a true break from work and are stressed out all the time. Insecurity in their jobs also adds to it. The above drains employees emotionally as all of these situations possess a perceived threat and this is what they experience as stress.
