Recession “causing managers’ health to deteriorate”

Research carried out by the Chartered Management Institute is showing that managers now, compared with 2007 before the recession began, are suffering increasing levels of mental health issues including depression.
Combined with the rise in stress-related illness is an increasing trend for managers to attempt to work through sickness in an attempt to boost productivity. This in fact has the opposite effect as a sick, de-motivated manager will de-motivate their staff by resorting to negative management techniques, causing overall productivity and morale to drop. This can also cause other staff members to be more likely to take a ‘sickie’ to avoid a grumpy manager causing productivity to decline further.
