Stress imposes significant costs on employee health and organization performance. Worryingly, these costs are escalating. For example , in the UK, stress related mental health problems cost business £ 28 billion per year (50 times the cost of strikes!). In the US stress related costs to business are estimated at $ 300 billion per year.

The causes of stress lie not only inside the organization but also outside it, in the external environment. Business becomes constantly more competitive. The economy becomes less predictable and more volatile. Employee's personal lives also contribute to stress. Indeed the causes of stress are many, complex and not possible to control. So what should we be doing about this as leaders?

We must focus on building employee stress resilience. This is a far more rewarding and realistic strategy than attempting to eliminate the causes of stress. Employees free of damaging stress help avoid the costs of stress related illness. Even more importantly , employees in a relaxed yet acutely alert state of mind demonstrate enhanced emotional intelligence . This reflects in improved teamwork, creativity and customer service , just what we need to propel growth in the business.
