Stress at work and how it effects employees
69% of employees report that work is a significant source of stress and 41% say they typically feel tense or stressed out during the workday. job stress is estimated to cost U.S industries more than $300 billion a year in absenteeism, turn over, diminished productivity, and medical legal and insurance cost.
Having some stress is not a bad thing. Many times it motivates workers to get their work done and it usually does. It makes a worker become responsible and independent. But also having too much stress can create an absence of workers coming to work. When this occurs, businesses lose money. It could also lead to workers making poor decisions while on the duty.
