How to quantify anxiety in the workplace and measure its impact on culture and performance
Anxiety in the workplace is at an all-time high and is rising. There has been a 67% rise in the number of employees who reported they feel anxiety at work over the past two years.
The National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) reports that 50% of all employees are preparing to leave their current jobs because companies are not addressing employees’ needs:
Companies are not making employees feel secure in their positions and roles going forward
Companies are not attempting to understand how working from home changed family dynamics and employee expectations
Senior leaders are not making employees feel like they care about them and feel part of the team
As we will review during this E-Book, a sense of security, understanding, and acceptance are the Dimensions of Anxiety, which implies, according to the NACD, 50% of the workforce is planning on finding a new job in 2021 because companies are not addressing anxiety in the workplace.
