But if they focus only on increasing productivity and profitability, they will eventually decrease both. True sustainability comes from giving equal priority to productivity and employee well-being.


I know this firsthand. When I was a high-ranking executive at A.T. Kearney, I suffered a mental breakdown, culminating in a suicide attempt. It was then that I began to wonder how widespread and impactful the problem of workplace stress and depression really are.
