THE BIGGEST CAUSE OF WORKPLACE STRESS is the pace of change - according to a recent survey of HR professionals. And over 60% of employees believed that the most stressful aspect of their job is their immediate boss. Four out of five employers think stress reduces their organisation's productivity and almost three-quarters of HR professionals believe that their employer is suffering. Studies also report the problem is on the increase compared to just a year ago.
So, the most successful businesses of the future will be able to deal with change while protecting their employees from the pressures.
One study concluded that stress reduced net profit by 14% and there is evidence that 60% of sickness absence and 40% of staff turnover is due to stress.
