Oxygen Plan Webinar Reveals Costs of and Solutions for Workplace Stress

MINNEAPOLIS—March 2, 2012—The bad news for U.S. employers is that 40 percent of turnover and 33 percent of Workers Compensation claims derive from stress. The good news is that stress is the number one modifiable health risk. An upcoming webinar from The Oxygen Plan will educate employers on this important and costly issue.

“Stress and Employee Engagement: What Employee Stress is Costing Your Business” will help attendees better understand how this silent epidemic affects engagement and productivity, as well as the bottom line. The complimentary webinar will be held on Thursday, March 8 from 1:00 p.m. — 2:00 p.m. Eastern time.

Presented by Dr. Donald E. Williams, chief science officer of The Oxygen Plan, the webinar will educate attendees on:

• A working definition of stress
• How stress erodes employee engagement
