Corporate Wellness Programs: Combat Workplace Stress with LifeBeat

LB_BandComp1BannerAsk nearly any American in the corporate sector, and they’ll tell you they feel as though they’re working longer days at jobs that are becoming increasingly difficult. As a result, it’s really no surprise that more and more workers are beginning to feel the impact of workplace stress. In fact, according to the American Institute of Stress, stress and conditions aggravated by stress costs the American economy over $300 billion dollars annually. Luckily, NeuroSky has developed a wearable, mobile ECG device to help combat the influence of workplace stress—The LifeBeat personal health and activity tracker.
The Dangers of Workplace StressBeyond problems such as absenteeism, diminished productivity, and workplace accidents, stress is taking both physical and emotional tolls on workers. A recent survey found that 14% of respondents claimed that they felt the urge to strike a co-worker within the past year. An additional 18% of those surveyed indicated that they had been threatened both physically and verbally in the workplace.
