Stress at work is a major issue. The latest estimates from the Labour Force Survey (LFS) show that it accounts for 40% of all work-related illnesses.
Mind, the mental health charity, estimates that British businesses lose £26 billion each year in sickness absence and lost productivity. It believes one third of this huge figure – around £8 billion – could be saved with greater awareness and mental health support.
So the 15th annual National Stress Awareness Day, taking place on 6 November, provides an important focal point for businesses that want to rise to this peculiarly modern day challenge. It aims to help individuals and organisations to recognise and begin making changes to the behaviours and lifestyles which can lead to excessive stress.
The online course defines what stress is and what it is not, and encourages people to look at their work and home lives to identify potential problems.
Once they are aware of these it helps them to pinpoint areas where improvements could be made to enable them to manage these issues better.
The course also provides practical information and tips on how to improve coping mechanisms with stress issues at work and home.
