The average employee works over 40 hours a week, creating a family atmosphere inside the office. These are the people you see nearly every day, people you celebrate success and cry over failure with. These people become your people. And that’s a good thing because studies prove that supportive relationships with coworkers boosts productivity and feelings of well-being in the workplace. But like all families, when one member is shaken by personal tragedy, we’re all affected.
Why it matters
Being underprepared is expensive to employers—to the tune of up to $500 billion in lost productivity every year. On average only 5% of employees use EAPs. People’s well-being are at stake.
