How has stress effected work?

We have all missed a working day in our lives whether that may be for work or going to school but what we all know we have missed the oppurtunity of learning a new skill or doing on a task that may be important.But stress is a whole different story.With stress, it may start as a sick day but soon it will be more and more often and you will feel more down and deppresed than usual until you will reach the point where you will be reluctant to travel to your workplace.

This is what is happening to many people so now instead of people emailing sick notes they are having to stay at home and do nothing but sit under the covers of their beds.This is making many people miss jobless and because of this economys are getting poorer.An even more important reason is that many of the duties people have are decreasing because of this crisis.I am talking about teachers not teaching and cleaners not cleaning.Therefore children are uneducated and the floors are filled with filthiness.

Is this a good enough excuse? There are varied oppinions about this because some people think that because of this there is a big whole in countries economys but others think that human rights is far more important than the financial status.

My oppinion is that if people are feeling stressed people have all the right not to go to work.I think this because if somebody is stressed they may not perform as well as they normally would and this would be uselles because doing something halfway is as good as not doing it at all.

Another reason is because at your job you may need to talk to people alot like receptionists and your team but if you are feeling sad and lonely being social isn't as easy because you certainly will not be in the talking mood.

The last reason is because if they are suffering through hard times they might really angry which will disrupt the place he/she is working at; this will build a bad enviroment which may result to the boss firing the worker and that worker may be the best employee.

Do you agree with me?

    It's a very really important thing for employers to think about, consistent_starfruit, and I think it's fair to say there has been a lot of stress among people who have jobs with an uncertain future, as well as those who have had to change the way they are working. Many businesses have schemes to help people talk about their worries and concerns. I'm not sure it always leads to uncleanliness in schools though, but I think your other points about loneliness are certainly worth thinking about.

    How could businesses make sure their workers don't become lonely if they are having to work from home?

      In answer to your question I would say that they should always do zoom meetings and get in touch. They can also post assignments and do them this way everybody will be on the same turf and no one will be left out. The final way they can resolve loneliness is by sending them pictures and the shots taken at work therefore this will let them feel the vibes that their colleagues are feeling. I also just want to say that without technology there is no way to interact with your colleagues so this is the time where technology is most needed. Do you agree with me.

    I think it affects your life a bit and your job because you might no be able to work as well as you could.I think it might make you stop working and you might not be able to work as because of your stressed. There might feel a bit lonely and feel like everyone is avoding you and that feeling is probably very sad and because of lockdown I has a huge impact of seeing people though zoom and other things have been brung in a lot of technology.I think stress is going to be very often since the impact of seeing people.
