Stress in the workplace can have far-reaching consequences. Employees cite frustration, anger, poor health, and a lack of productivity as a result of dealing with stressful issues on the job. Employers report absenteeism, turnover and high medical costs due to sickness and other health issues associated with work anxiety.
In a recent Northwestern Life survey cited by the Centers for Disease Control, 40% of workers said their jobs are very or extremely stressful, and one-fourth of all employees view their jobs as the number one stressor in their lives.1

with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.”
