The Workplace is Broken

According to the American Institute of Stress, 40% of workers reported their job was very or extremely stressful. 25% view their jobs as the number one stressor in their lives. 75% of employees believe that workers have more on-the-job stress than a generation ago. 29% of workers felt quite a bit or extremely stressed at work.

Excessive workplace stress causes a staggering 120,000 deaths and results in nearly $190 billion in health care costs each year. This represents 5% to 8% of national health care spending, derived primarily from high demands at work ($48 billion), lack of insurance ($40 billion), and work-family conflict ($24 billion).

According to a report by Health Advocate, stress has a negative impact on the productivity of a worker, and it can result in $300 billion in lost productivity.

As leaders, we all want our employees to get along, be fulfilled in their job and invested in company growth. Unfortunately, that’s not the reality in most organizations. Inappropriate and disrespectful conduct in the workplace is like pollution – it fouls the entire work environment. A polluted environment is unhealthy for employees and thwarts the possibility of a productive and prosperous workplace. A work environment where toxic and disrespectful behavior is tolerated causes untold amounts of stress upon employees.

Stress is characterized as “the Nation’s fastest growing occupational disease” by the National Council on Compensation Insurance and has become a major issue for corporate leaders today. With the recent rise in high cost stress claims, organizations have become interested in preventing potential stress problems.

Job stress can cause actual physical, mental and emotional problems for employees such as heart disease, hypertension, anxiety & depression and substance abuse. Research shows that approximately 100 million workdays are being lost due to stress and nearly 50% to 75% of diseases are related to stress. If employees’ stress is ignored by the employer, the results are increased healthcare costs, lower productivity and often additional financial losses due to legal damages. All of this results in lower profits for the business.

After getting weekly calls from employees wanting to sue their company because of a hostile work environment, it was evident we had to do something. Especially since the majority of the time, what was happening was not right but also not illegal. In response, we created The Respectful Workplace Framework. A proven process to minimize stress in the workplace and help drive growth for your business.

It is my goal to shed light on this topic and raise people’s emotional intelligence as it concerns the impact their behavior has on others. I provide practical, easy to implement, tools to companies and their employees that help eradicate toxic behavior and create work environments where all people are valued and can thrive and the company can prosper.
