experienced work-related stress last month. Study after study shows that stress levels are higher than ever before and increasing, compounded by external and macroeconomic pressures. The problem is that high employee stress levels not only impact mental and physical health, but also workplace morale, productivity, efficiency, and even bottom-line performance.
Many companies have responded with much-needed mental health care to address stress-related and other mental health challenges. But there may be more that we can do. Physical activity and fitness are sometimes overlooked but highly effective at working alongside mental health support to boost energy, focus, and overall employee satisfaction.
