The American Psychological Association (APA), conducts an annual Stress in America™ survey. For over a decade, money and work have consistently topped the list of stressors. Last year, the survey revealed a common new source of significant stress: the future of our nation.
In the August 2017 survey, the top stressors were:
- Money (62%)
- Work (61%)
- Future of our nation (63%)
What does that have to do with your organization’s learning and development? Stress isn’t just a personal issue; it’s also a personnel issue. Unmanaged stress has a negative impact on personal relationships, work performance, absenteeism, and health. Millennials, a big part of today’s workforce, continue to have the highest reported stress levels, according to the APA’s 2017 study. We know you can’t control all the different sources of stress in life, but you and your team can learn to control how you react to it. You just need the right soft skills training.
