Calculating the cost of work-related stress

Jun 30, 2014

Work-related stress is more expensive than you might think.

It doesn’t just cost organisations as a result of absenteeism and reduced productivity. Individuals also bear the costs of health impairment and reduced quality of life. Ultimately, it is national economies and society that pay the price.

A new report by EU-OSHA examines the costs of work-related stress and shows that, contrary to popular belief, it costs far more to ignore stress than to address it.
