When workplace demands are higher than an employee's or workforce's current capacity, an inevitable capacity gap follows, and stress appears. Stress helps overcome that gap but in the long-term it can lead to serious health problems and consequently a decrease in engagement and loss of productivity.
94% of workers report experiencing stress at their workplace and 41% say that stress and anxiety affect their work productivity and co-worker relations more than any other factor.1
Workplace stress causes around one million employees to miss work every day and businesses lose up to $300 billion yearly as a result.2
The search for long-term, quality solutions is leading companies to frequently choose multidisciplinary approaches as a means to improve employee engagement and combat absenteeism. According to the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, efficient and holistic systems for employee improvement is the key solution companies are using to achieve their goals and conduct successful operations.
Companies spend around 75% of a worker’s annual salary to cover lost productivity or hire replacements.3
It's imperative to bridge this capacity gap as the costs of ignoring lagging employee productivity are high. While there are abundant strategies for increasing employee engagement, they don't get to the heart of the problem, that is, how to "mind the gap". Stress resilience now comes into play.
It is a process of adapting well in the face of adversity or significant sources of stress - such as workplace pressures. Learning how to increase stress resilience which consequently expands capacity levels can positively transform business performance.
So now the only question is, how will you help your business and key employees stay healthy with optimal doses of the newest vitamin C?
