According to the Government Health and Safety Executive (HSE) the total number of cases of work related stress, depression or anxiety in 2014/15 was 440,000 cases.
The total number of working days lost due to this condition in 2014/15 was 9.9 million days. This equated to an average of 23 days lost per case.
And with the ever increasing pressures placed on employees to achieve more and for less and faster, these statistics show no signs of abating.
Stress in the workplace can be a real issue and sometimes those suffering don’t even notice. By recognising the symptoms of stress in others, and encouraging them to deal with it, potential long term issues can be avoided.
The GBS Recognising and Dealing with Employee Stress course has been designed for managers, leaders and supervisors who are responsible for ensuring employees are not experiencing unreasonable levels of stress at work. This programme will also cover the Health and Safety issues involved in stress management and the legal consequences. Delegates will leave equipped to manage their own stress and those of others.
