"If left unchecked, stress at the workplace can lead to more serious mental and physical health problems"
Dr Delroy, Clinical Director of mental health, Bupa, 2013
The struggle to juggle heavy demands at work has proven to cause stress, anxiety and depression amongst 1000s of empolyees across many sectors and industries.
The total number of working days in the UK lost due to stress, depression or anxiety was 11.3 million in 2013/14, an average of 23 days per case of stress, depression or anxiety (Labour Force Survey, 2014)
Expanding workloads, managing disgruntled staff and meeting targets can result work-related stress. This develops because a person is unable to cope with the demands being placed on them. Work related stress, can be a significant cause of illness and is known to be linked with high levels of sickness absence and staff turnover.
Organisations are in a prime position to make it easier for their employees to work more productivly, creativly and happily. Tackling stress is a major part of your organisation's Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
