90 The Actual Cost of Black and Brown Employees Missing Work Due to Workplace Stress-Related Issues

The actual cost of Black and Brown employees missing work due to workplace stress-related issues may not be as “innocent” as you thought.

As a consultant who has worked in and with many organizations, I’ve seen firsthand the impact of workplace stress on employees’ mental and physical health. And unfortunately, Black and Brown employees are often more susceptible to these stress-related issues.

In this episode, we’ll explore the actual cost of Black and Brown employees missing work due to workplace stress-related issues and what organizations can do to address this.

See you inside…

Anita Charlot, the Corporate Metaphysician, consults and advises businesses and organizations in exploring the deeper philosophical questions related to their purpose, values, and impact on society.

She helps leaders at socially conscious organizations develop a more holistic understanding of their place in the world by using real-world, metaphysical, and philosophical principles to guide decision-making processes that help businesses align their actions with their stated values as it relates to matters specific to their Black and Brown employees.
