Stress in the Workplace
Stress is common place in todays environment - at home, at work or any place in life. Through this Millions of pounds are lost within business evry month due to stress whether it is through illness, people taking time off work, breakdowns in relationships at work, low productivity, or poor customer service.
Many employers are becoming aware of the importance of the well-being for their staff to maintaining a good working relationship to maintain or even increase productivity levels and are therefore introducing specific policies to ensure the effective management of stress in the workplace.
There are a number of factors recognised as being triggers of stress and stress-related
illnesses and these can be found both at home and in the workplace. The symptoms vary
dramatically from person to person and can be relatively minor as well as severely debilitating.
Different people respond in different ways to the challenges that arise in the workplace and
what is a major stress factor for some may be a simple problem easily overcome by others.
It is not a sign of weakness to feel the effects of stress more than your colleagues do and
making comparisons between yourself and your peers can actually increase stress levels further
still. Most jobs involve some unavoidable pressures and demands that can cause feelings of stress.
