Description

Managers, take note: That reorganization or other big change you're planning may well end up stressing your employees out. That makes sense intuitively, and now here’s proof. Researcher Michael S. Dahl looked at the medical histories of nearly 93,000 Danish employees at more than 1,500 of the largest companies in that country. He found that when companies made organizational changes, the company’s employees had a significantly higher risk of developing stress conditions such as insomnia, anxiety and depression that required prescription medication.
