The article actually does call them "survivors," and warns that if employers try to "squeeze more work out of fewer people, [rolling] back benefits because there are 100 people lined up for every job, they may find that [. . .] the short-term fix is long-term dumb." The last thing businesses want as they try to restructure and survive is "stressed-out talent."
I think it's best to focus on the successes--companies that recognize the connection between the well-being of their workforce and their bottom line. The Time article names several. Their balance sheets remain healthy, and I believe it's because they remain committed to keeping their employees well--in every sense of the word.
