Stress, Health and Productivity Available Online


Stress management is often overlooked in the work environment as a tool to increase productivity. Employers often assume that stressful working conditions are a necessary evil that comes with the territory. But studies show that stressful working environments are associated with increased absenteeism, tardiness and workers quitting which has a negative effect of productivity and overall morale. Learn to identify the types of stress and their related causes. Get techniques for reducing and managing stress to increase your productivity and overall well-being.
