Stress Management Strategies Help Employees Be Healthier (and Happier)

Stress is a daily challenge in the workplace and in our lives. Over the past 25 years especially it’s been on a steady rise.

Consider the fallout (all sources Statistics Canada):

In 2010, slightly more than 1 in 4 Canadian employees described their day-to-day lives as highly stressful.

• The majority of highly stressed employees (62%) identified work as their main source of stress.

• Stress-related job absences cost our economy more than $4.5 billion dollars each year.

Among the most common stressors, employees cite the feeling of having little control over their working conditions.

They feel under-employed or simply not a good fit with their job, and they don’t get enough support from their manager or other employees.

Then there’s the stress-inducing search for an ever-elusive work life balance between job and family responsibilities.

Stress management strategies are an essential part of any employee wellness program. They can help:

• Increase productivity
• Lower absenteeism
• Improve morale
• Retain employees
• Lower overall business costs
