Year of Stress Management

Stress is the health epidemic of the 21st century, according to the World Health Organization. In fact, stress can be as harmful to the body as an unhealthy diet, according to a study at Brigham Young University.
What does this mean for employers? One recent study estimated work-related stress cost U.S. businesses $30 billion a year in lost workdays. 


Triad EAP is proud to be addressing this issue directly with the Year of Stress Management, an easy-to-use program based on a Six-Step Stress Prevention Model that takes employees through a stress management journey which promotes happier, healthier, and more highly motivated employees.
