Does your boss make you sick?

Work place stress can be detrimental to an employee’s health. 40% of the people say their jobs are either stressful or extremely stressful.

The leading cause of workplace related stress is because of ‘poor employee-supervisor relationships’.

Researchers have found that the workers who feel that they are treated fairly at work had a 30 percent lower risk of coronary heart disease.

Stress not only is hazardous to an employee’s health, it can also lead to lower productivity and increasing healthcare cost.

Stress caused by 'poor employee-supervisor behaviour' also drives people away from their job; so much so that, according to a Gallup poll the No .1 reason people quit a job is because of a bad boss.
