5 reasons why workplace anxiety costs businesses a fortune
A study conducted by the National Institute of Mental Health reported that over 40 million Americans are dealing with some form of an anxiety disorder. With over 18 percent of the U.S. population having been diagnosed with anxiety, a large majority have cited their workplace as a major contributor. Anxiety is the most common form of mental illness in the country. Most people can identify with being stressed or having felt anxious at some point based on certain life events — a new job, moving to a new state or giving a big presentation. However, it's important to note the differentiating factors between healthy levels of stress, and having more severe, chronic anxiety. This can infringe on an individual's ability to carry out even the most basic, everyday responsibilities.
