Recent research suggests that a large percentage of our employees experience either financial stress, relationship stress, or both. While the numbers of those suffering from these forms of stress have already reached epidemic proportions, data suggests that this problem has actually been getting worse over the last few years (especially for Millennials and Post-Millennials). Further, since few employees are able to effectively “check their stress at the door,” this stress has a profound impact on the engagement, retention, and productivity of our employees.
Robert Stewart uses his unusual background (HR professional and social scientist), to provide an intriguing “out of the box” perspective on these contemporary employee challenges. In this presentation, leaders will gain increased knowledge regarding the importance of helping their employees reduce their “at home” stress in order to improve their “at work” engagement. Finally, Robert will provide strategies that can help companies create a game plan to reduce the financial and relational stress within their respective organizations.
You will learn:
- How this stress not only impacts the health and happiness of our employees, but how it costs organizations in production, engagement, and retention of talent.
- Why these forms of stress are often “invisible” to supervisors and colleagues and how we can change our culture with an effective plan to help employees no longer suffer in silence
- How to combat these social science problems with effective (but largely unused) social science solutions
