Emotional toll of divorce costs companies dearly
A 2006 study by Minneapolis-based Life Innovations titled "Marriage & Family Wellness: Corporate America’s Business?" calculated that:
● Stress from relationship-related issues cost companies $300 billion a year.
● In the year after a divorce, employees lost an average of more than 168 hours of work time, according to a 2005 study by Richard Mueller, a researcher at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada.
● Unhappily married couples are almost four times more likely to have a partner abusing alcohol than happily married couples, according to a 2006 study in Journal of Family Psychology.
● Financial pressures typically worsen for employees going through divorce, the cost of which can range from $15,000 to $30,000.
Because of this, many employees have to adjust to a major change in their standard of living. "These challenges are not the kind to be resolved overnight," said Joshua Estrin, a licensed psychotherapist based in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. "The divorce process can take anywhere from a few months to several years."
