NFL's Impact on Employee Stress

By Rick Horrow and Karla Swatek
October 7, 2013

Does the NFL stress out its fans? ComPsych Corporation, the world’s largest provider of employee assistance programs, founded by Dr. Richard A. Chaifetz, recently attempted to find out.

Last month, ComPsych conducted a stress pulse poll among its U.S. customer companies on the effects of NFL fandom on employees. 319 total respondents answered the NFL stress pulse poll, with 58% saying they’re either very interested in or frequently think about their favorite team.

According to ComPysch’s CEO Dr, Chaifetz, NFL fandom “is an example of stressors/workplace distractions that employees face every day.” ComPsych tries to educate the companies it works with about early intervention, in order to help people before they are in crisis mode or take reactions to an extreme.
