There’s a disconnect between your own core values and the core values of the organisation.

‘How do we explain depression to ourselves?’ Bifo remembers Mark Fisher | Novara Media
Mark Fisher explained his suffering in direct relationship with the way he perceived himself in the other’s sight, and he said he felt ‘good for nothing’. We are hundreds of millions who, like him, are forced to feel good for nothing because we cannot comply with the competitive demands in exchange for which our identity is socially certified.

William Davies: The Political Economy of Unhappiness. New Left Review 71, September-October 2011.
"Depression is just sheer incapacity, a distinctly neo-liberal form of psychological deficiency, representing the flipside of an ethos that implores individuals to act, enjoy, perform, create, achieve and maximize. In an economy based in large part on services, enthusiasm, dynamism and optimism are vital workplace resources. The depressed employee is stricken by a chronic deflation of these psycho-economic capacities, which can lead him or her to feel economically useless, and consequently more depressed. The workplace therefore acquires a therapeutic function, for if people can somehow be persuaded to remain in work despite mental or physical illness, then their self-esteem will be prevented from falling too low, and their bio-psycho-economic potential might be rescued."

The lost generation: The kids brought up to feel as if they're failing - from school to TV shows like The Apprentice and The X Factor - Features - Health & Families - The Independent
"Never has that strong sense of self been more necessary for professional survival. The model of business success presented through the media is both ugly and unrealistic. It starts with a group of unpleasant young people on The Apprentice trying to do each other down and curry favour with the sour-faced business guru Alan Sugar. It continues with people trying to set up their own businesses being humiliated on Dragons' Den. It ends, by a miraculous process that no one will be able to explain, in the annual wet dream of financial triumph that is the Sunday Times Rich List."

Employment: Presenteeism - Centre for Mental Health
"Productivity losses caused by health problems are more likely to take the form of presenteeism rather than absenteeism among white-collar workers, particularly professional and executive staff, than they are among blue-collar workers. This is pushing up the costs of presenteeism, as the balance of employment shifts away from manual work and towards higher-paid non-manual jobs."

"Presenteeism tends to go up and absenteeism down when jobs are at risk, as employees seek to reduce their chances of being made redundant by maintaining a good attendance record even when unwell. The current weak state of the labour market is therefore increasing presenteeism and its associated costs."

BBC News - Is it time to start talking about a depression?
"We're seeing much less pessimism around, but not yet optimism," he says.

"We're in an environment of uncertainty, which is very sentiment driven."

But he adds that many businesses are still concentrating on cost control to grow profits, which suggests a lack of confidence.
