HEC helps employees identify their negative stress and take action to make positive changes in their lives. Through education, experiential techniques and programs such as Massage, Meditation, Aromatherapy, Humor, Stress Management and Seasonal Selections, HEC helps empower employees to take control of their life.
In daily life, we often use the term “stress” to describe negative situations, but not all stress is bad for you. Eustress is positive stress that helps motivate and improve performance. Distress is negative stress that causes anxiety, mental and physical problems. HEC distinguishes between the two and allows people to look at a problem causing them stress through a different lens.
Negative Effects of Distress:
- Health problems such as high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, diabetes
- Poor decision making
- Increase in mistakes
- Increase sickness and absences
- High staff turnover
- Poor employee/workplace relations
“Three-fourths of employees believe the worker has more on-the-job stress than a generation ago.” -Princeton Survey Research Associates
