Stress and work-pressure

Stress and work pressure already represent 29% of 
absenteeism and a third of incapacity for work.
About 30% of all healthcare costs are directly or indirectly 
the result of psychological problems. According to the World 
Health Organization (WHO), the costs of mental health problems in the Netherlands amount to about 4% of the gross national 
product and that is without indirect costs such as lost 
productivity.
