Reduce Stress in The Workplace

National stress awareness day, 4th November

 Are you doing enough to tackle stress in the workplace? 4th November is National Stress Awareness Day, focusing on raising awareness in how to help people beat stress.

The theme this year is "Employee wellbeing as a worthwhile investment in your business"

In 2014/15, stress accounted for 35% of all work related ill health cases, and 43% of all working days lost due to ill health. (figures from HSA)



The main work-related causes of stress were:

  • Workload pressures
  • Staff conflict
  • Tight deadlines
  • Too much responsibility
  • Lack of managerial support

As an employer, are you or and your managers able to identify signs of stress? Are you equipped to overcome the above challenges?

It’s pretty obvious that healthier employees will be happier, and that happier employees are more productive, efficient, resilient and engaged.

For the employer this means increased productivity, a better working environment and more happy customers whilst reducing staff turnover and absenteeism costs.

The International Stress Management Association (ISMA) has some great free downloads for employers and staff to tackle stress

We offer management skills training to develop supervisors and managers in confidently dealing with everyday people management situations
