Unfortunately, this dissatisfaction and stress lead to a habitual pattern of absence from work, that you are paying a whole lot of money for.
Consider this startling fact: Over half of the 550 million lost working days in the U.S. are stress related — this equates to approximately $30 billion!
And if you’re thinking “We have a very lost absenteeism rate in my law practice.“, here’s a stat for you – 60% of workers attribute reoccurring instances of presenteeism to stress. Presenteeism is when a worker is physically present at the law office, but lacks productivity. This is costing $200 billion in the U.S.
