Stress has become a real pandemic in developed countries, affecting 40 million people only in Europe. Since 2009, the number of sick days lost to stress, depression and anxiety has increased by 24% ; between 2010 and 2014, a MILLION PEOPLE took sick leave for longer than four weeks due to stress.
Currently, employers cannot provide continuous and individualised solutions for each stress case. Despite a variety of methods to combat stress, such as medication or yoga, 81% of people fail to recover through existing treatments aimed at changing life habits. Even combatting stress in the workplace has become increasingly stressful.
Research carried out by the Mindfulness All-Party Parliamentary Group (MAPPG) , states that brief periods of practice, such as the one that Owl training promotes, can lead to objectively measurable increases in improved reaction times, higher comprehension scores, better working memory functioning and significantly more creative problem-solving and decision-making.
Several reports from ESADE and Randstad show that each Euro invested by employers to manage stress has a return of €10. Providing Owl training to any employee will ultimately result in economical benefits.
