New 4imprint White Paper: The Business Case for Stress Management
Blue Paper® Outlines the Role Stress Plays in the Workforce, and How to Combat It
(OSHKOSH, Wis.)— Promotional products retailer 4imprint releases its most recent podcast and Blue Paper (its own version of a white paper), titled The Business Case for Stress Management & What Employers Can Do About It.
“Stress is obviously a serious issue for businesses,” states 4imprint Vice President of Human Resources Mary Curtin. “It impacts productivity, attitude, turnover and overall health. We see an incredible value by addressing this issue and wanted our customers to benefit from the latest research addressing how to combat stress in the workplace.”
According to reports released in 2007 from the American Psychology Association, stress comes with a hefty price tag, costing American businesses more than $300 billion per year. More recent and conservative data indicates that 22 percent of group health insurance costs are stress-related and that psychosocial stress has been estimated to be responsible for 33 percent of worker compensation costs, reports Dr. Lyle Miller in his 2009 article “The Business Case for Corporate Stress Assessment Intervention.”
4imprint’s Blue Paper, The Business Case for Stress Management & What Employers Can Do About It, offers examples of successful techniques other businesses have employed to reduce stress, including mandatory vacation, training and workplace flexibility.
The Blue Paper (4imprint’s version of a white paper) and podcast are available for download at https://info.4imprint.com/bluepapers/.
