Balancing Work and Home
Many people struggle to juggle a full-time job while also caring for young children, aging parents, and other responsibilities on a daily basis. It can feel like there are not enough hours in a day—that there are too many responsibilities at work and at home—and that you can't complete tasks in either place—many people feel this way. This online employee wellness course helps trainees manage home and work responsibilities, stress, and daily expectations. The benefits to you, the employer, are numerous, from lower healthcare costs to increased employee productivity.

Employees who are better able to balance the demands on their time are more satisfied and content. This leads to employer benefits in terms of productivity gains, lower turnover rate, a stronger team spirit, and employer loyalty. Too much stress over time can cause health problems. Stress reportedly costs American companies more than $300 billion per year in terms of poor performance, absenteeism, and healthcare costs. Companies that have worked to reduce stress in the workplace have reported a decline in workers' compensation claims by as much as 55 percent. Stress often goes hand in hand with substance abuse and violence and the legal problems they bring. Stress affects people physically and mentally and is linked to many illnesses, including high blood pressure, back pain, and headaches. In fact, each workday, more employees are absent because of headaches than from any other single cause. Headaches account for an estimated 157 million lost workdays annually. In all, job stress is estimated to cost $200 billion to $300 billion annually in absenteeism, tardiness, and lost productivity. The good news is that employees can learn to manage their stress.
