I search “work stress” on Google News every day. Well over a hundred thousand results greet me and the daunting task of separating the wheat from the chaff begins. I tend to look for new information and trends from the credible companies that track this stuff worldwide. Taking note of global trends, perhaps we should all put work stress on our personal “fix-it” list.

The latest Towers Watson survey for example, was a stunner. The global professional services company found that 98% of the respondents in their survey (companies that measure well-being at work) indicated stress management was the key focus toward improving employee productivity. The study is out of the UK, but it’s certainly a wake up call for us all.

Did your work stress go up a notch when you learned of the Boston bombings? How many were glued to iPhones and computers, absorbing the images and sounds of terror? Hi-tech devices and the Internet deliver it in real time. In an evolving workplace culture courtesy technology, a dip in attention can happen in an instant upon breaking news, and potentially linger for hours or days. Arguably, it’s an external workplace stressor that we’re not talking enough about.
In a galvanizing feature on CBS Sunday Morning by correspondent Martha Teichner, she articulated the impact of real time technology as Boston’s tragedy came to us vividly in the moment, with social media carrying the torch of instant information.

The tragic events in Boston this week lead WorkLifeNation.com’s Work & Well-Being Update #Vlog (which I record weekly on Google Hangout) for the third week of National Stress Awareness Month.
Being here in New York and watching how the terror attack unfolded, two things came to mind: 9/11 and the incredible resilience of the human spirit. I can’t help but send love out to my friends in Boston, especially at the Boston College Center for Work & Family. And through it all there is this spark of connection and humanity. We don’t leave our hearts at the door of the workplace and this event has arguably brought up memories from 9/11. Working through tragedy requires enormous resilience and as a nation we know a lot about that.
