DMEC Think Tank Addresses 'Extreme Productivity' in Difficult Economic Environment
Date:4/8/2009

SAN DIEGO, April 8 /PRNewswire/ -- The Disability Management Employer Coalition (DMEC) today released its 2008 Think Tank report entitled, "Extreme Productivity: Are Your Employees Hitting the Wall?" This in-depth report addresses the urgent challenges faced by employers trying to maintain employees' full engagement in their work while promoting health and wellness and reducing stress.

The topic is critical, given the severe downturn in the economy and widespread job cutbacks, which add to already high levels of workplace stress. In this environment, companies need to promote employee health and wellness to maintain optimal productivity -- not maximal, which is unsustainable. Employers that fail to meet this challenge risk losing their most precious resource -- their human capital--to burnout.

Examining the problem of extreme productivity, the Think Tank concluded that employers must tailor solutions to their workplace, taking into consideration such factors as the size of the organization, the average age of employees, the type of work performed, and prevalent health issues.

Further, to mitigate the impact of extreme productivity, companies must be willing to "ask the excellent questions" to discern how best to promote employee health and wellness. For some companies, questions may center on how to build resiliency to help employees handle tough work demands while gaining a sense of control over their lives. For others, it might be how to give employees a greater say in their work and enhance job satisfaction to reduce turnover and improve morale.

The Think Tank also showcased specific initiatives undertaken by employers, representing both large and small companies, across several industries:
