Work is a leading source of stress for adults, impacting both employee wellbeing and business outcomes.
1 in 3 employees is stressed at work
In fact, a third of employees report being stressed at work. Research has shown that stressed workers are less engaged, have reduced productivity, and have higher levels of absenteeism and turnover. What’s more, stressed employees have higher healthcare costs than their less-stressed peers. From depression to heart disease, the consequences of stress-related illnesses cost U.S. businesses nearly $200 billion a year.
If you or your employees have experienced stress, many of these statistics won’t come as a surprise. Businesses are increasingly taking note and investing in employee wellness solutions, including science-backed mindfulness training.
