How many times have you found yourself in a similar situation: You come across something that you know you’ve read before, but you can’t figure out where it came from. Or, it’s crunch time and you’re throwing together PowerPoint slides but need one little fact to fill in a blank somewhere, and for the life of you, you can’t figure out why Google won’t read your mind this one time you really need it! If only you had been one of those über organized people and saved (in categorized, flagged, and keyword marked electronic file folders of course) that important document, journal article, or magazine clipping, or at the very least knew where to look for it! Sound familiar?
Admit it, there are a lot of facts, stats, and figures out there and even those type-As would have a challenging time keeping track of them all. That’s why we pulled together a few helpful facts and put them into a Fact Sheet that you can view online or download and keep as a reference (no color coding required). The Psychologically Healthy Workplace Fact Sheet: By the Numbers covers topics such as workplace stress and demands, work-life balance and flexibility, employee health and healthcare costs, mental health issues, and employee and organizational outcomes. It’s also fully referenced so you can easily locate the original source – more than half of the references even have embedded Web links.
The plan is to update this document as time goes by and more research comes out. So if you’re ever snooping around for some good reading or are in search of an impressive stat to hit your boss up with to get (fill in the blank), check back and see if anything new catches your eye.
Happy stress-free reading!
