Stress Management Workshop

In 2014/15, stress accounted for 43% of all working days lost due to ill health. So if you have employees who are stressed, it WILL be costing your business money in lost productivity. It is also your legal responsibility to safeguard the health of your workers, so failing to address stress issues could end up costing you dearly in other ways too.

Main work factors leading to professional stress (Labour Force Survey) include tight deadlines, too much responsibility and a lack of managerial support. Training your middle managers in how to recognise and deal with their own stress issues as well as those of their teams is therefore a vital investment, and one that we want to help you address as part of our Healthy Workplaces Service.

Topics covered include:

Why your business is legally obliged to manage and minimise workplace stress
Techniques to help managers confidently identify, manage and reduce stressful practices and behaviours among their teams
Assistance for managers in knowing when and how to intervene
How to ensure stressful behaviours are addressed and harnessed to help, rather than hinder, business within your organisation

Guidance on how to identify and manage personal stress triggers
How to develop good practice risk assessment processes
