Work Stressors: Part II
The American Psychological Association recently surveyed workers to determine what causes them the most work stress. The second highest stressor was lack of opportunity for advancement.
46% of people surveyed perceive they have little opportunity to advance, and this causes them stress. Part of developing your business and your people is to be mindful of ways to better engage your people’s talents.
In the Parable of the Talents in Matthew 25:15, Jesus said, “To one he gave five talents, to another, two, and to another, one, each according to his own ability; and he went on his journey.”
Jesus gave a different amount to each servant depending upon their stewardship ability. If you have employees with lots of ability, creatively find ways to provide more opportunity for them to advance.
