Incentives to the Rescue?

Fringe benefits like work-life initiatives, retraining, education or wellness programs (like stress-reduction), are already on the radar of more progressive companies. But perhaps such incentives should be shouted from the corporate kingdom's bell tower in a call for better employee engagement and wellness in a stressed-out working culture.

"In the final analysis, it doesn't matter how much technology you have, if workers are exhausted and hanging on to their jobs by their fingernails," says Kellner.

Is all this economic news indeed a harbinger of things to come? Kellner says it's the job of the prognosticators to figure that out. But where there's smoke there just might be fire. The C-suite might do well to wake up and smell the coffee. If they don't, it might be the smell of their employees burning out instead.

Are the numbers a fluke or a harbinger of things to come? Will the C-Suite's interest be piqued?
