Suicide and esprit de corps in corporations USA 2015

Any student of organizational behavior can cite the statistic: Workplace satisfaction is not built on wages. Feeling valued and respected is. Military folks call it esprit de corps – the feelings of loyalty, enthusiasm and devotion among people who are members of a group .[1] In other words, people look out for each other, regardless of rank or position. If an EMS organization is in such rough shape that staff no longer look out for each other, it won’t perform in a sustained, healthy manner.

Suicide of a co-worker should be a sentinel event for everyone.
