Reality, however, is just the opposite. A positive approach positively affects bottom lines, whether in the boardroom, classroom, or at home. And lack of happiness exacts its financial toll. Consider some of the numbers: Working mothers have plenty of company. Nearly 25.7 million mothers with children under 18 were part of the U.S. workforce in 2007. That’s nearly double the number in 1975, according to estimates from the U.S. Bureau of Labors Statistics and the Census Bureau’s monthly Current Population Survey. What Happy Working Mothers Know • U.S. businesses lose more than $300 billion annually due to employee stress as manifested by increased absenteeism, employee turnover, diminished productivity, medical, legal, and insurance expenses, and workers’ compensation payments. Put into perspective, that’s 10 times the cost of all workplace strikes combined. • A big chunk of that stress, and therefore cost, is a result of less productive working parents worried about what their children are doing after school, according to a 2006 study from the Women’s Studies Research Center at Brandeis University and Catalyst, a leading nonprofit research and advisory organization. • Worker fatigue more common in women than men costs employers about $136 billion-plus a year in health related lost productivity, according to a 2007 study from the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine.
