The work environment can be a killer because of stress. According to a 2016 Harvard/Stanford study, they found that 120,000 workplace deaths may be linked to workplace stress.
This and more such information is contained in a recent article: “2017 Mind the Workplace Report”, which surveyed 170,000 U.S. workers. The report says 71% of current employees were actively looking for a new job or had it on their minds.
They cite three reasons:
- Professional recognition is hard to come by
- Employee’s feel alone
- Skyrocketing stress
While I’ve been out of the corporate life for about 4 years, pursuing my own dream by owning my own business and loving it, I still must work hard, and yes, it can be stressful but I’m doing it for me, my husband and my family and that, ladies and gentlemen, makes it all worthwhile.
