Stress in the workplace is the number one controllable factor affecting productivity, missed workdays, and rising healthcare costs. Understanding how our perceptions of others and events impacts our emotions and actions can help decrease our stress level at home and work. Employees can be taught simple techniques that empower them to make lasting life changes to their attitudes and behaviours, and can decrease their stress level by up to 33%. As negative stress and ineffective behaviour decreases, productivity increases.
