Stress & More


Stress

Workplace stress costs the nation more than $300 billion each year in health care, missed work and stress reduction efforts.

Stress is responsible for 19 percent of employee absenteeism and 40 percent of employee turnover.

Stress is responsible for creating 60 percent of the cost of workplace accidents.

Research shows that 60 to 90 percent of doctor visits are stress-related.

A landmark 20-year study conducted by the University of London concluded that unmanaged reactions to stress were a more dangerous risk factor for cancer and heart disease than either cigarette smoking or high cholesterol foods.

90 percent of all disease is caused or complicated by stress.
