ADVANTAGES

Dr. Carol Dewa believes that there is a link between psychiatric disorders and work-related stress (1). She conducted a study in Canada to test this theory. The study included 22,118 working respondents from the Canadian Community Health Group. The results showed that thirty-one percent of respondents experienced chronic work stress. This stress led to at least one chronic physical or psychiatric disorder among those affected. Study conclusions showed the presence of chronic work stress appears to amplify the effects of other disorders. The study also found that workplace related anxieties are often associated with sick leave requests (1). As a result, excessive absenteeism abounds and negatively affects the overall productivity of the organization.
