Abstract: Disease-related absences due to mental illness have risen sharply in recent years. The aim of this work is to develop a key performance indicator system that can be used to describe the chronic stress burden on employees in a company. Based on the state of the art of heart rate variability (HRV) and stress medication, it was deductively concluded on possible indicator systems which were subsequently evaluated. A simple and composite system of indicators has been developed, which makes it possible to determine the tendency of adaptability (health and well-being) to external and internal influences of employees. This suggests a tendency towards chronic stress for employees. The key indicator systems are able to produce a valid final result without any user interaction. They provide information on how many employees show the corresponding tendency during the survey period. With the help of the indicator systems, companies can take appropriate measures to protect their employees from serious illnesses.
