For generations, the health & wellness industries have grown exponentially every year.
With the rise of technology, and the ready access to information globally, the health & wellness industries are continuing to expand rapidly.
Despite this, people around the world are more unhealthy than ever before, and they’re facing more serious diseases and health crises than previously seen.
Stress, and in direct correlation, exhaustion and burnout are on the rise, and their effects are impacting the productivity of every organisation.
It is estimated that stress and burnout cost business around US$1 Trillion per year. The most alarming part of this figure is that it’s likely only the tip of the iceberg. It is estimated that almost 50% of stress and burnout occurrence is never reported. The true cost of this unwellness epidemic therefore remains unknown.
What is it costing your business?
Almost every workplace is suffering, but what is it costing you?
While every organisation is unique, there are a number of common themes arising:
- Almost 60% of employed adults do not believe they are working productively most of the time.
- Managers with direct reports are more stressed than those without direct reports.
- More than 40% of workers believe that poor leadership is the most stressful part of their job, and will seek to change their employment.
- More than 40% of workers believe that they feel a lot of ‘negative energy’ in the workplace, and will seek to change their employment.
- Over half of all workers believe that change and complexity at work is correlated with job dissatisfaction and more frequent, high levels of stress at work.
Do you know what your employees really feel about working for you?
There is often a big gap between how the senior leaders believe their employees feel and the reality of those feelings.
With the overload of information in the public domain, it’s easy to see how it’s become normal to believe that the world is stressful now, and that every workplace reflects this. But the reality is that people now feel that they’re on a ‘fast track’ to dying young and they’re priming themselves to jump ship.
