Stress Costs Australia Money We Don’t Have

According to a study conducted by Medibank Private, workplace stress costs the Australian economy $14.81 billion a year. If that’s not enough, the study further indicated stress-related presenteeism (there in body, but not in mind), costs employers $10.11 billion a year.

These numbers can’t be real because they’re so big! But, it makes sense.

However, if workers are happy, they are more productive. If there are fewer absences because workers are healthier, everyone wins!
