Employee Takes A Sickie (Her Boss’s Response Will Blow Your Mind)

The traditional work environment generates tons of stress. Greater understanding of mental health issues means that things have to change. Thankfully, now there are new ways of escaping the modern work life ‘pressure cooker’…


How do you feel after work, or at the end of a long work?

It’s an important question to ask yourself because the workplace is one of the biggest sources of stress in your life.

In fact, workplace stress causes issues for 73% of workers.

Now, some employers are great at helping employees manage this issue.

Tech Company Values Come to the Fore

For example, Madalyn Parker an employee of Olark, a tech company had run into some personal issues.

This had led to some mental health issues that became so severe that she felt that she needed to take time off.

She left an out-of-office email to let everybody know that she was taking time off. More importantly, she told them why.

Then, Olark’s CEO emailed her and received the out-of-office response.

For most people, that would be a terrible thing. Mental health still has a stigma attached to it and a lot of people don’t see it as a justifiable reason to take time off.

But Olark does things differently:

With just one message, Olark CEO Ben Congleton recognises why it’s important to take care of your mental health.

What’s the Issue?

While Olark may understand the effects that mental health can have, most companies don’t.

In fact, many of you reading this would expect an entirely different response to that email.

You might even be told to ‘not bother coming back’.

What Are Your Options

Thankfully, you have plenty of choices to get more control of your life, your time and your wellbeing….and even potentially escaping the 9-5 pressure cooker for good, if that’s what you want.

One of them is replacing your current job income, with income from a passive source.
