Worth in the Workplace
Why does it matter? With statistics like these, we should be paying closer attention to how we treat our employees.
STRESS = 70% of American workers experience stress-related illnesses.
BURN-OUT = 34% think they will burn out on the job in the next two years.
HEART ATTACKS = The Los Angeles Times reports that there is a 33 percent increase in heart attacks on Monday mornings.
INJURY = Entrepreneur magazine adds that there is a 25 percent increase in work-related injuries on Mondays.
DEATH = According to the National Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more people die at nine o’clock Monday morning than at any other time of day or any other day of the week.
SUICIDE = Male suicides are highest on Sunday nights, with men realizing that their careers—and possibly their finances as well—are not where they want them.

After having 38 jobs in 45 years, none of which I was fired from, I understand how important it is to get the right person in the right seat on the right bus! People are longing for fulfillment and we are leaving them undervalued, underpaid, and overworked.
