Is there a common connection in Bankers committing suicide?

In the 1930’s bankers who committed suicide were commonly known as “jumpers” as the fought to maintain the pressures of failing businesses. It’s the same cliché today, so is there a common connection? Large public polls show that the general population are angry at large banks who were bailed out during our economic collapse (much like they are at congress).

Most bankers start their career at a very early age and fight to rise to the top of their industry. If they only knew that their rise to the top only numbered their days.  It’s a stressful and very volatile position that can take its toll on the mental state of mind of these professionals, and the common and unfortunate end result seems to be suicide.

Bio Scene Clean Up gets calls to perform the clean up and bio-hazardous remediation in scenes like this frequently.  Suicides (accidents in the workplace) are more common than anyone would imagine. Our technicians are experienced in trauma, death, suicide and murder / crime scenes.  From blood removal, to clean up of bodily fluids and matter, we perform these tasks discreetly and with the utmost confidentiality. We realize the importance of restoring these scenes and getting the area back to a normal, functioning condition as soon as possible.  It’s an emotional time and we work diligently to provide expedient services that do not impede the normal business activities.

These cases are all sad and tragic incidents and Bio Scene Clean Up is experienced in working with authorities and professionals in work places to help keep the trauma of co-workers or co-tenants to a minimum, while resorting the accident scenes.  We provide 24 hour, 7 day per week emergency dispatch to these types of scenes.

Because of the recent rise of suspected and know suicides among banking executives, we have to wonder what the direct relating cause is.  Recently, more and more larger financial institutions have insisted on executives taking more time off and providing better working conditions and benefits for their employees. Our company is always disturbed by receiving calls to scenes of such promising, often very young victims of suicide.
