How Stress Affects The Office – The Loss of Productivity Explained
Alarming, but true, 30% of US employers have high levels of stress in their office costing businesses over $300 billion annually. This infographic explains the numbers and might just motivate your office to make some internal changes to improve production and employee morale.
There are a number of things we can do to lower stress levels at the office, but research strongly supports that simply by showing employees that they are appreciated and valued can lower anxiety and frustration levels. Little things like a pat on the back or simply stopping at an employees desk to say “thank you, I appreciate all of your hard work” can often go a very long way. Employees are far more likely to complain about their environment, compensation, and management when they feel undervalued and unappreciated.
