With rising stress in the corporate environment all over the globe, employees are bound to feel exploited and unimportant. The most important thing here, is to give them proper coaching and make them understand that they are important assets of a company and diminishing the level of their performance might lead to a decline in overall growth of a company. This is not just a ploy to make them feel good, but rather, this is the bitter truth of corporations. The employees of any company are the blood and veins of the company, even a single blow in one of the veins could end up being severely damaging, if not fatal, for the company. This is why it is important that the stress level of the employees in a work place be kept in check.
