Stress in The Workplace

As a leader:

  • Are you concerned about the high cost of absenteeism in your organisation?
  • Are you struggling with high staff turnover?
  • Do you have a demotivated workforce?
  • Is  your business shrinking, with not enough new clients?


  • Are you experiencing a flood of new clients, feeling swamped and out of control

One in five of the working population is currently affected by stress, and stress is the main cause of sick leave. According to the Stress Management Society, this costs employers £1.24 billion per year.

Are you suffering from any of these?

  • Lack of motivation
  • Short-tempered, aggressive behaviour
  • Poor decision making, loss of concentration
  • Destructive behaviour in relationships
  • Poor sleep, unable to switch off

Physically our health suffers too, and can result in an increase in:

  • obesity
  • alcohol consumption
  • high blood pressure, strokes, heart attacks continually feeling tired

When the pressure piles on for too long, stress and its debilitating effects impact the entire workforce.

Do the following sound familiar to you? You are:

  • bombarded with messages
  • constantly problemsolving
  • trying to staying ahead of the competition
  • having to remain alert and accountable to your team
  • aiming to meet rigorous demands, of tight deadlines and to stay within budget
  • responsive to your clients’ needs, delivering a high quality service
