How Does Anxiety Affect Your Work Performance?

Anxiety is a common yet often overlooked problem. Millions of Americans deal with the symptoms of anxiety every single day, yet only 9 percent have an actual anxiety disorder diagnosis. Anxiety takes a toll on every aspect of an affected person’s life, including work. Fifty-six percent of surveyed employees say that anxiety affects their job performance, and half report a negative impact on relationships with co-workers and peers. Stress in the workplace can take a toll on the entire business operations. Here are some of the effects:


MISSED DEADLINES
Anxiety in the workplace affects some Americans, and research found that it can decrease work performance. One of the worst results is missing deadlines. Fifty-five percent of employees surveyed said they experienced anxiety about deadlines, which may even contribute to missing them altogether.


HIGHER EMPLOYEE TURNOVER
People who experience anxiety at work are less likely to experience job satisfaction. When employee don’t feel fulfilled or satisfied with their work, they are more likely to seek employment elsewhere. Hiring and training employees can cost thousands of dollars, not to mention the time commitment involved. Chronic stress in your workplace may lead to high employee turnover and wasted money on recruitment efforts.


DAMAGE TO COMPANY IMAGE
When companies experience a high rate of employee turnover, prospective employee can’t help but wonder if the company itself is somehow to blame. Workers today are interested in an engaging and collaborative company culture. If a stressful workplace is leadings short terms of employment, the top talent may seek employment elsewhere.


So what can company leaders do?
It can be difficult to tell if your employees struggle with anxiety at work since most do not speak about it. However, there are things you can do to make your workplace less stressful for all: keep your lines of communication open, offer time management classes, set boundaries and encourage them to take advantage of employee benefits.


A progressive approach to mental health can help businesses attract and retain top talent. Today’s workers want more than just sick days and paid time off – they want to know that their employers care about them, both personally and professionally. In creating an emotionally and mentally healthy workplace will keep your current workers engaged in their jobs, as well as make your company a coveted place to work.
