Job stress is a major concern
Monster, mega job-search website, found that 42% of U.S. respondents had left jobs because of excessive stress in the workplace. Moreover, the authors stated, “Workplace stress has also caused an additional 35% to consider changing jobs.”
Equally significant, only 3% of the more than 6,700 people surveyed said they did not experience stress at their jobs. Nearly two-thirds of those polled in the Monster survey said they thought job stress had caused them to become ill at some point and 45% said they lost time on the job because of it.

HeartMath Study Shows Intervention Can Help
The HeartMath Institute study Impact of a Workplace Stress Reduction Program on Blood Pressure and Emotional Health in Hypertensive Employees showed even a short intervention program could reduce job stress. The study examined the effects of HeartMath’s Inner Quality Management? program on blood pressure and emotional health in hypertensive employees at a global information technology company.
The results included clinically significant lower blood pressure and improved emotional health. The researchers concluded such interventions could produce a healthier, more productive workforce while reducing company losses from cognitive decline, illness and premature death.
