Stress Management In The Workplace
Change Management Consultants often tell employees to master computer skills, improve their communication style, and dress for success. However, the ability to manage stress in the workplace is equally important. Consider the following:
- Stress-related incidents cost U.S. companies about $200 billion a year in workplace mistakes, bad decisions, and lost time, according to the International Labor Organization.
- Each time you become upset on the job, you take approximately 10 minutes off your life.
- Acute stress can cause corticosteroid damage, and a host of other life-threatening physical conditions according to researchers at The Ohio State School of Medicine.
