How much is stress costing your
Stress affects both our physical, mental
and emotional health and reduces our ability to perform
at our highest levels. The huge amount
of stress we all face is
increasingly due to the rapidly accelerating pace of
social and economic change.
As companies consolidate and global competition
intensifies, everyone is having to work harder.
Technology may have eliminated many tedious mind numbing
tasks but it has increased workload and the pressure for
instant response. Job insecurity and the spectre
of unemployment haunts many people. Add events such as
divorce, birth of a child or bereavement, plus the daily
pressures of balancing home and work, and it is little
wonder the figures for stress are so high.
