Stress is a great producer of energy, alertness, and productivity. It’s what helps all of us meet deadlines, take on new challenges, and accept risk. Without a healthy dose of stress most companies would be stagnant in growth, acquisition, and revenue.
Now with unrealistic expectations of long hours, over-committed workloads, unrelenting loyalty, and increasing lack of control over their careers, workplace stress has quickly become the biggest hindrance to a business’s bottom-line. Essential resources such as time, money, training, and brainstorming can be cannibalized to combat employee attrition, absenteeism, healthcare costs, and low morale.
