Although the most recent trends of work-life balance, employee benefits, and various other perks are beginning to take hold in corporate America, strenuous workplace conditions can still tend to affect employees in a negative manner.

For those who understand the stress of long hours, taxing positions, and the possibility of unemployment, the idea that work conditions might affect someone’s health is probably not surprising. For employees, the best ways to remain healthy despite stressful workplace conditions would be, according to The Washington Post:

  1. Pursue higher education and continued training when possible
  2. Choose a field with higher job security and health benefits

 

As for employers, the realization that the workplace can have an unhealthy impact on employees is of utmost importance. While the jobs such employers provide might not be hazardous in and of themselves, they still indirectly influence an individual’s health.

Although an employer is not responsible for fulfilling each employee’s every need, he or she can greatly increase the well-being of employees simply by addressing these simple factors. When it comes down to it, healthy employees are happier, more positive, and even more productive, thereby creating benefit for both employer and employee.
