Yoga @ Work
Stress...is it really worth it?
Stress & tension are often hidden in physical issues like stomach ulcers, migraines,
strained muscles and back pain.
Employees who suffer from stress-related problems are more likely to take time off due to the physical effects caused by stress.
Canadian businesses are recognizing that a person’s stress level – whether at work or at home – is a major contributor to workplace morale and individual motivation. Keep an employee focused and working to the best of their ability, and the company will succeed. When people are satisfied in their job; and are recognized by their employer as being 'a solid performer'; stress and tension levels in the office are considerably lower. Inter- departmental participation becomes the norm, and communication is open and honest. The overall benefit to the company is pretty huge.
Companies who concentrate on addressing; and subsequently reducing; employee stress report less overall absenteeism, and see much more co-operation and collaboration in the workplace.
Employees who participate in programs at work report a better sense of 'well-being', less anger, and have more coping mechanisms to draw from when things get tough.
