Study 8 – Human Resources Risks
Workplace Stress

A study of call center employees revealed that employees in the industry suffer higher rates of stress and emotional difficulty than workers in other industries. The call center industry currently employs about half a million Canadians. It is estimated that among 100 recent hires at a call center, 14% may experience high levels of stress and 10% may experience high levels of depression. Each day about 10% of employees call in sick, turnover may run as high as 50% or more a year and the cost of training a replacement employee is more than $6,000. This will have a significant impact on the company’s profits.
