The Remedy for Absenteeism

American business and industry estimate that millions of dollars air lost each workday through employee absenteeism. Personnel and industrial relations directors and found that many cases of absenteeism aren't what they appear to be. Frequently they find that the underlying cause of a headache, an upset stomach, or a cold is worry, fear, or a dislike of a supervisor or a fellow employee.

In Christian Science the remedy for this loss of work would be the employee's establishment of a spiritual understanding of God as Love and of man's relation to Him.

To a young man starting out in business it may be difficult to see what bearing spiritual understanding can have on the wrong placement of his talents in a job or the unfair treatment he is receiving from a boss. Yet the fact is that a spiritual knowledge of man as the image and likeness of God will help clarify the purpose of his work and give him greater satisfaction and confidence in his job and its function.
