Is Your Job Killing You?

This blog has been telling you for years. You've always suspected it. Now you have proof. Your job may indeed be killing you - literally.

A research study conducted by the Tel Aviv University has discovered that people with little or no social support from their co-workers were 2.4 times more likely to die in the next three decades than those who said they had close, supportive bonds with their workmates.

Their conclusion implies that people whose Working Style has a preference for working with peers on in groups may be in danger in toxic workplaces where they can't find colleagues to team up with. Similarly, people whose Working Style strength is working alone, may be able to cope better in an unfriendly workplace.

There are other ways in which the workplace can lead to stress: incorrect lighting, unsuitable room temperature, shift hours that are incompatible with your Working Style.

Check your preferences today!

PS: The good news? Having a horrible boss is not correlated to your chances of dying within the next few decades.
