Let me begin by painting a quick picture.
“Many workplace practices are as harmful as secondhand smoke.”
“Workplace environments in the United States may be responsible for 120,000 excess deaths per year—which would make workplaces the fifth leading cause of death—and account for about $180 billion in additional health-care expenditures, approximately 8 percent of the total health-care spending.”
Job stress costs US employers more than $300 billion annually.
Seventy-nine percent of people who quit their jobs cite lack of appreciation as their reason for leaving.
“According to the Mayo Clinic, the person you report to at work is more important for your health than your family doctor.”
Fifty-eight percent of employees say they trust strangers more than their boss.
A whopping 73 percent of those surveyed say they work strictly for the paycheck.
Last, but certainly not least…
Fifty-eight percent of managers say they did not receive any management training whatsoever.
