Our weekly roundup of workplace news from around the web.
Recently, NPRconducted a poll that found a substantial number of working adults say stress is a critical health issue they face at work. “Fifty-one percent of the people in our poll said their workplace has a formal wellness or health improvement program.

HBRreports on how the family dynamics you grew up with probably affect how you operate at work: “My work with top executives has shown that deep-seated, sometimes irrational fears can skew their decisions and their ability to execute company strategy. But I’ve found another influence, equally deep-seated, that affects how they deal with others in the C-suite: their earliest interactions with family members and friends.”
