Personnel management systems can help mitigate stress-related fall in employee productivity
When deployed and used in an efficient manner, personnel management systems can help HR practitioners improve staff’s productivity, especially in those specific areas where stress can have a significantly adverse effect on employee productivity.
Research from Britain’s Healthiest Workplace, surveying more than 32,538 workers across all UK industries, revealed that high stress and lack of physical activity are causing industries to lose up to 27 days of productive time per employee each year.
The study, which was conducted by VitalityHealth, Mercer, the University of Cambridge and RAND Europe, found that productivity varies enormously between industries, with some industries losing almost 27 days of productive time per employee per year, compared to a national average of 23.5 days. Healthcare and financial services lose 26.6 and 24.9 days per employee a year respectively, while high-tech loses just 18.9 days per employee per year.
The financial implications of this productivity loss are huge, with the UK losing £57bn a year on average in lost productivity. Work-related stress plays a significant role in the productivity losses incurred, with 73 percent of employees nationally suffering from at least one dimension of work-related stress. Those industries with higher productivity losses typically have higher levels of work-related stress.
