According to a New York Times article, the cost of stress to business is $200-$300 billion a year in absenteeism, lost productivity, turnover, and illness.

How is it affecting YOUR Company?

Results from the Gallup Poll (2000),
“Attitudes in the American Workplace VI”

  • Approximately one million employees in the US are absent daily due to stress or stress-related conditions
  • 78% of Americans respond that their job is stressful
  • Another 74% felt stress was impacting their coworkers negatively
  • In California, Worker's Compensation claims for stress related illness have topped one billion dollars annually
  • 80% of workers feel stress on the job, and nearly half of those say they need help in learning how to manage stress
  • Prescriptions for anti-depressants, anti-anxiety drugs and sleep aids rose 27% between 2000 and 2002

Dear Rick and Patricia,

Many thanks for your recent Stress Management courses which you ran at my office. It proved most helpful. I felt the benefit. Your sympathetic and amusing presentation went down very well indeed - even I laughed at Rick's jokes.

Stress in the workplace is no laughing matter but humour is a good reliever. I know that you take this subject very seriously but the fact that you can engage your audience with such charm and sincerity is a massive bonus in encouraging participation.

In the end we all need help from time to time and it’s nice to know that people like you exist to give it.

I look forward to seeing you both again soon.

Best wishes,
