Stress and the Bottom Line
The stress-impacted worker is the real source for both direct medical costs and indirect performance costs. Organizational budgets are eaten away by escalating health insurance and worker compensation costs for many conditions that could be prevented or corrected by reducing stress.
The American Institute of Stress estimates that over $300 billion annually is lost by U.S. businesses due to stress-related accidents, absenteeism, employee turnover, diminished productivity, direct medical, legal and insurance costs, and worker compensation awards.
A Few Simple Truths
Stress-impacted employees perform poorly, consume greater resources, and generate health insurance costs that detract from the focus, goals and bottom line of the business.
Meditators regularly add value to their organization through an increase in focus and creativity. They also help their business prosper by decreasing medical expenses and by displaying an enthusiastic, positive attitude.
