Stress is a killer — literally. When employees are stressed, it kills their work ethic, productivity, happiness, and even impacts their physical health. Stress leads to burnout, a mental and physical exhaustion. Eventually, this can result in physical symptoms, mental health issues, workplace accidents, absenteeism, and workers leaving your company.
It goes back to creating a culture that supports workers and makes them want to stick around. Encouraging a proper work/life balance and providing the means and support to do so can reduce employee turnover significantly.
