It’s been said that 90% of disease are caused by stress. According to McKinsey Health Institute1, globally one in four employees are experiencing signs of burnout.
Stress hormones weaken the immune system, increase aging and the risk of (chronic) disease. That’s enough reason to take the stress level of your employees seriously.
In addition, lack of energy directly impacts your productivity, your ability to be creative (hello problem solving!), and your capacity to be discerning. When you are tired, chances are you take things way more personally than when you are balanced and rested.
