The holidays are upon us, but they aren’t always filled with fun, family and friends. On the contrary, the holiday season has the potential to bring about feelings of stress, loneliness and anxiety for many. From decorating, cooking and preparing for guests, to buying gifts and finding the time to wrap them, ho-ho-ho often feels like go-go-go. More than 60 percent of Americans recently said they experience some level of stress during the holidays, while another study found that a massive 45 percent would prefer to skip Christmas entirely because it brings too much financial pressure and stress.
Organizations need to recognize the challenges employees face both inside and outside of the workplace and the powerful impact these can have on their overall health and happiness, especially during the holiday season. In order to mitigate these issues, it is imperative that organizations focus on incorporating effective holiday support into their year-round benefits strategy.
