Do you know that the work you do is killing you slowly?

Jeffrey Pfeffer says that '' works kill people and nobody cares, '' does not say in a mysterious way

 He is quite sure of the research he has done for decades, in the United States and the world as a whole. Professor Pfeffer from Stanford College of Business School and a journalist and assistant correspondent of 15 books about the company structure and human resource management issues, has pointed out in his recent book, '' Death for Salary ''  of the work that affects them and even leads to the frustration of people's lives

In the book he is talking about Kenji Hamada, a 42-year-old who died in a heart attack at his desk in Tokyo.

Before his death, he worked for 40 days without rest and his widow says Kenji had a great stress

This is one of the examples in his post, where the author explains the effects of the work system that is sometimes '' not human '' due to the great roles of work.

According to the evidence laid by Pfeffer, in the United States, 61 percent of workers feel that stress has caused them to be one and 7 percent say they were admitted for work related reasons.

His estimation is that the stress is linked to the deaths of 120,000 US workers.

From a economic perspective, stress has cost the employers more than 300,000 US dollars a year in the United States.

In your book you have noted that there is a system of work that kills people.

There is evidence of health effects. Many work hours, job losses, lack of health insurance, economic issues, family conflict and disease.

The work has now grown not in humanity. On the other hand, companies have ceased to be responsible for their employees.

But economic challenges have increased, fear of unemployment is also increasing.
In investment banks, for example, there is a way of working, you go home to bathe and go back to the office.

In that system, many employers enter the drug addiction, because they end up using Cocaine and other drugs to be alert.

A factory worker, a pilot, a truck driver, have a number of working hours.

But there are no other work hours.

In the United States, the fifth cause of death is part of the work.
But who is responsible for these deaths?

Employers and governments are responsible for not taking any action on this matter.

It's a great job that we have to do something to stop this. But we won't do anything as an individual.

If you want to solve the problem it should be in the order that will come out of the legal system.

Poor working conditions cause diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure.

But when we talk about costs, companies can argue that making changes in the working system will affect the company's income.

This is not true, says Professor Pfeffer. '' We know that people in your stress are in a great chance to quit ''.

He pointed out that it is known that the United States and UK more than 50% of work days are lost because of the absence of workers due to work stress.

So there is a great impact on the patient who goes to work and does not work as required. This is costing the company.

Workers should take care of themselves

On the part of the staff, the Professor has written that people are self-concerned.

How will the work environment be changed?

Professor says, first employees should take care of their health.

If you are going to work, where you cannot relate to your job and family, you should stop that work.

Another thing is that people should make sure that the laws are followed.
