“Workplace stress is one of the most common, yet most unaddressed killers of productivity in today’s workplaces.” ~ Bill J. Bonnstetter, chairman and founder of TTI Success Insights
One of the universal sources of workplace problems is stress – yet companies rarely understand how to identify it, let alone address it.
Every job has stressful elements, even if you love what you do. Some stress at work is normal, however, studies show that job stress, which is the major source of adult stress, has been escalating.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, now more than ever before, job stress poses a threat to the health of workers, and in turn, to the health of organizations. (Centers for Disease Control + Prevention).
Symptoms in the workplace include:
- High levels of absenteeism and illness
- Low employee morale
- High level of staff turnover
- Low levels of employee engagement
- Low productivity and efficiency
- Increase conflict
- Erosion of bottom line profits
A 2013 survey by the American Psychological Association’s Center for Organizational Excellence found that job-related stress is a serious issue. More than 1/3 of working Americans reported experiencing chronic work stress. New evidence suggests if left unaddressed, it can fester and spread throughout an organization, slowly crippling teams.
From a scientific perspective, stress is very impactful to the body. Watch Dr. Ron Bonnstetter detail these effects in this short video.
