Reduce Stress & Improve Employee Performance

Eight in ten, a whopping 80%, of Americans say they frequently encounter stress in their lives[1].


While stress can be useful in small doses, frequent stress can take a tremendous physical, emotional, and psychological toll on the individual. According to the Mayo Clinic, some side effects of stress include: Fatigue, sadness or depression, angry outbursts, drug and alcohol abuse, and lack of motivation or focus[2].


Alone, or in combination, these factors have a tremendously negative impact on employee performance, job satisfaction, and health, as well as increased costs to the employer. According to a study 40% of workplace turnover is stress-related, and an estimated 1 million Americans are absent from work each day, due to stress[3].


To help combat these issues, consider adding yoga as part of your corporate wellness routine. The many benefits of yoga include: reduced stress, increased focus, improved sleep, and better immune function[4].


As they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
