What are Canadians most stressed about? Money.
According to a recent report, Canadian companies are losing $16 billion in productivity each year due to worker absenteeism, and much of that can be attributed to stress.
Financially-stressed Canadians spend an average of 16 hours a week worrying about their financial situation—that’s 832 hours of lost time per year! Not only can these worries lead to absenteeism and absent-mindedness, they can also become dangerous or deadly for workers operating heavy machinery or equipment.
