JUNE: Employee Wellness Month
Most employers are great at setting deadlines and delegating tasks which can cause even the most dutiful and organized employee stress. But what if your company also offered a convenient way to reduce stress during the workday?
Work-related stress is a growing problem that affects not only the health and well-being of employees, but also their productivity and the company's bottom line.
What one person may perceive as a challenge another may perceive as a stressful event. It’s good to be aware of the signs/symptoms of work-related stress.
Reduced ability to concentrate or make decisions
Increase in sick day usage
Diminished initiative & work performance
Not working well with others
Lower tolerance of frustration and impatience
