Psychiatric disabilities are steadily growing and costing companies in lost productivity and employee absenteeism.
According to American Psychological Association, for example, at Bank One–now J.P. Morgan Chase–employees’ mental health issues from 2000–2002 accounted for the second leading cause of short-term disability and were second in total of days absent from work–behind only pregnancy.
One is left only to wonder, if the concern is for absent employees or the sick employees. If its the sick, are they sick because of the workplace pressures themselves?
