Abstract

Depression strikes some 10 million US workers every year, costing US businesses as much as $43 billion annually in lost productivity and absenteeism. When people are depressed, they act out this depression in different ways. Men tend to “explode”, and women tend to “implode”. Looks at the causes of depression in the workplace, the costs to US businesses, and the training managers need to help their employees as well as their organizations.
