The World Health Organization has declared stress to be one of the biggest health risk factors of the 21st century. In today’s organisations stress has become a key factor in the management of human resources. Studies show that the number of stress related sick days has dramatically increased in the industrialised countries over the past decade.
Absenteeism and presenteeism is costing Australian businesses over $10 billion a year with an average of 3.2 days lost per employee per year due to stress related causes. The burden of workplace stress on employees is significant and represents an area in which preventative measures produce strong economic and productivity gains for employers and the broader economy.
