The Costs of Stress

July 5, 2010


Stress is one consequence of today’s workplace with a high economic cost according to Dan Bobinski in Superman is a Fictional Character, In fact, research shows that the cost of stress to the American workplaces is about $300 million annually.

Companies have been doing what they can to try and alleviate the stress of their employees by providing benefits (e.g. massages, yoga classes) and programs (e.g. Employee Assistance Program) but they are not solving the problem. Employees and executives still feel like they are losing control of their work load.

An effective and proven solution is teaching employees self awareness so they can see their strengths and blind spots and manage the latter accordingly. Modern companies nowadays have made emotional intelligences programs a part of their workplace, as research shows that 80% of workplace success is a direct result of emotional intelligence.

Family and friends can be great stress relievers. Also, if you have the time, take a look at our Stress Busters Ebook.
