Too many people in the workforce, particularly men, are Silent Warriors. They suffer through extreme stress, silently, month-after-month, and year-after-year.
The impact, is staggering.
1: A 2014 Great Britain Labour Force Survey shows that 39% of all work-relate illnesses were from work-related stress, depression or anxiety. Resulting in an average of 23 days per case of stress, depression or anxiety.
2: U.S. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ research findings warn business that increasing job stress is responsible for an annual $10,000 per worker.
3: And among the nation’s top executives, the impact is even worse. $10 to $20 billion is lost each year through absence, hospitalization and early death,
much of it a direct result of stress.
The taboo of admitting to being stressed has been “outed.”
And Andrea Wood Schmitz has a solution.
