  • Why Address Stress at Work?

    The business case for addressing stress at work has multiple elements: economic, legal, financial and moral, not forgetting poor performance of staff working under pressure prior to stress related absence.

    If ignored, stress can have long standing effects, such as increase in sickness absences, loss in performance, high turnover of staff, low morale, all accumulating in increased costs and at its worst a breakdown of the whole organisation.

    Early intervention in addressing this issue can prevent this downward spiral and create and maintain a happy, healthy and high performing workforce.

    Most organisations are unaware of the actual costs to their business and of the dramatic savings that can be made by effectively managing stress at work.

    A tenth of managers are ‘close to breaking point’, while many are too stressed and overburdened to help team members deal with their own pressures, a survey has revealed.

    The survey of 6,000 employees, carried out by healthcare provider Bupa, found that one in five middle managers have felt stressed for more than a year.  Half said they felt ‘constantly worried’, whilst 40 per cent have experienced depression as a result of being stressed.

    However, the majority of managers feel unable to share their issues with peers, with 15 per cent claiming that this might make them appear weak.  Two out of three of those surveyed said they would keep quiet about their stress, with only 12 per cent feeling they could speak to their boss about their stress levels.

    The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) are taking the impact of stress in the workplace very seriously and have developed the Management Standards as Guidelines for organisations to tackle this issue.
