As John S. Ingram and Steven Di Pilla of ESIS Inc. explain in their 2007 white paper titled "Stress in the Workplace," these costs can result from reduced worker productivity, absenteeism, medical costs, legal and insurance fees, and other direct and indirect consequences.
We've learned from our In-Depth Series on the topic that stress-related issues and other behavioral risks are both an emerging risk and an issue that employers have long dealt with. And something that we can never learn enough about. That's where hopefully this ESIS white paper can come in handy for our readers.
Be sure to also review the bibliography in this report for a wealth of other resources on behavioral risk.
