San Francisco, Calif. (PRWEB) April 10, 2009
Essi Systems®, Inc., the expert in stress research and assessment services and solutions, announced the availability of StressMap® Online, a self-administered assessment tool that measures employee stress levels, evaluates their ability to cope with stress, and suggests methods for dealing with stress effectively.
"Workplace stress cost companies billions of dollars each year," said Esther M. Orioli, Essi Systems' CEO. "Job stress severely impacts profitability and employee productivity. It paralyzes businesses, prevents organizations from functioning at full capacity, and in some cases puts companies out of business. Keeping a workforce resilient and promoting good stress management is crucial to an organization's survival and its bottom line."
StressMap Online targets areas for improvement and charts new strategies for enhancing employees' personal and professional life. Completed in as little as 15 minutes, it guides employees to cope more effectively with job-related stress, develops healthy behaviors, and increases job satisfaction and productivity. StressMap Online is extensively researched, norm tested and statistically reliable. It is confidential and secure - and a cost-effective way to reach every employee in an organization.
StressMap Online includes a comprehensive questionnaire, scoring grid and interpretation guide so employees can easily measure their pressures, changes and satisfactions; identify their stress strengths and weaknesses; and target areas for improvement. The online format archives results for easy retrieval and pre- and post-comparisons. StressMap Online automatically ranks performance and plots scores so progress can be measured over time.
StressMap Online can be used as a standalone assessment tool, integrated into an existing health or stress program, or plugged into a company's intranet at a fraction of the cost of traditional onsite training or health and wellness programs.
"Asking employees to do more with fewer resources is a huge employee stress factor," said Ms. Orioli. "Add a weakened economy and job uncertainty, and employee stress is at epidemic levels. Companies can elect to do nothing, or invest in proven, measurable and cost-effective tools that enhance an employee's personal health and overall performance which has a direct impact on the organization's bottom line."
StressMap Online is used by companies, organizations, departments, agencies and institutions in a wide range of industries including DuPont, 3M, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Caterpillar, Kaiser Permanente, and the U.S. Army Research Laboratory.
StressMap Online can be purchased directly on Essi Systems' website. For more information on Essi's products and services, contact Essi at essi(at)essisystems.com or call (415) 252-8224.
