A study from the Harvard Business School has found that resilience training can help significantly reduce depression, anxiety and presenteeism (employees working while sick) in the workplace. This is significant as 'for every worker with a depressive disorder, a company loses an average of 32 productive workdays per year. Depressed employees are also four to five times more likely to experience work-related problems than employees with chronic physical illnesses like diabetes or heart disease.'
