Leading industry surveys confirm today’s workforce experiences greater disengagement, higher levels of personal and work-related stress, increasing rates of illness, substance abuse, and interpersonal and team conflict.
The Result: Over one’s career, close to 70% of employees experience personal and work problems that affect their daily functioning. Over 80% of employees indicate feeling the impact of stress to the point of burnout and personal illness that costs organizations over 150 billion annually. Numerous performance evaluation studies confirm that up to 20% of any given workforce has active problems requiring intervention to manage productivity, health, and risk to the organization.
