The Bottom Line on Stress Costs to Business

You can help your company understand how sponsoring Tai Chi classes is in their best interest as well as yours. One of corporate America's highest unnecessary production costs is in lost productivity due to employee stress. U.S. businesses are losing $300 billion per year due to stress (that's over $7,500 per employee, per year), which may be why the Occupational Safety and Hazard Administration (OSHA) has declared stress a workplace hazard.

Using Tai Chi as Stress and Pain Relief

Companies and corporations are increasingly turning to Tai Chi as a solution to stress. Companies that have offered Tai Chi to either their employees, clients, or executive staffs include Sprint, Hallmark, Inc., Black and Veatch Corp., Associated Wholesale Grocers, BMA (Financial), and Columbia Hospitals, to name a few.

Tai Chi - (Corporate T'ai Chi)

Penthouse Tai Chi at BMA's Headquarters has been a popular wellness program. Approximately 100 employees attended the introductory Stress Management workshop.

Tai Chi & Qigong are the ultimate ergonomics program. Stress costs US business over $300 billion annually ($7,500 per employee, per year.)
