From an early age, most of us grow up with the expectation of working in our desired field.
We study, work hard and apply for roles which allow us to earn a living.
However, what happens when the act of ‘earning a living’ contributes to the decay of our quality of living? This seems to be the question we’re all pressed to answer as mental health becomes more of a concern today.
It’s reported that “1 out of 4 employees are looking to leave their job.” And just “1 out of 5 employees consider themselves very effective at their jobs.” This could be because “60% of employees have experienced mental health issues in the past year because of work.”
At Maximillion, we put together the Mental Health Infographic below to highlight concerns that ought to be addressed in the workplace.
With more than 25 years of experience as team management experts, we have been able to plan events which uplift the morale of various organisations. We have been able to boost the enthusiasm of employees. But most of all we have noticed that the stress of work has a serious effect on the happiness and productivity of staff.
Stress is costing employees’ job satisfaction. Moreover, costing employers’ money. Another day an unhappy employee shows up to work is another day when tasks aren’t approached with the right effort.
As we continue to battle against the lethargic working environment, we thought we’d highlight some key statistics which managers and directors ought to remedy. Although we have come a long way since the industrial age, in regulating occupations and ensuring the physical safety of employees, this chart shows we may still have a long way to go. We hope this graphic helps to illustrate the severity of our everyday working conditions. We look forward to being a part of the solution, join us.
