Companies are in a unique position to be a good influence on their employees’ health and general well-being. The question is: Is it the business of the business to take care of employees’ wellbeing?
A very good read by McKinsey.
"Up to 75 percent of people say that the most stressful part of their job is their immediate supervisor. I don’t know too many managers who wake up and say, “I want to make life miserable for my people.” Even so, we treat people at work in ways we’d never treat our family and friends. So the issue may not be that people need to learn how to care, it’s that people need to learn how to care at work."
