A survey of business professionals by recruitment firm Robert Half found almost 40 per cent reported a loss in productivity because of stress-related issues.

The biggest causes of stress were concern about the economy (63 per cent) and excessive workloads due to understaffing and lay-offs (60 per cent).

Robert Half spokesman Andrew Brushfield said stress was one of the costliest of workplace issues.

“Companies must find the balance between positive tension and energy which can enhance productivity, and high stress levels which can impede,” he said.
