Stress and wellbeing in the workplace briefings

As an employer, how can you create a working environment that stretches people to achieve great results without piling on pressure and causing stress?

Most people thrive in roles that help them learn and grow and achieve more than they thought they could. But problems arise when the pressures of work or indeed demands from our home lives make us feel stressed and overwhelmed and unable to cope.

We all know capable people who have suffered from anxiety and depression that has led to them needing to take time off work. This impacts not only on the individual mental health but also on their colleagues who have to take up the slack whilst they are away from work and the organisation as a whole in terms of increased costs and lost productivity.

As HR Consultants we are regularly called into organisations to support them in dealing with the consequences of situations such as these. This could be in terms of trying to encourage and support people returning to work after periods of long term sickness or dealing with capability issues for people that are struggling to deliver their objectives or going through disciplinary proceeding resulting from problem behaviour.

Stress and wellbeing 45 minute workshops

To help employers focus more on prevention than cure and adopt strategies that support their employees we are hosting short 45 minute Wellbeing at Work briefings to explore the issues around:

  • The causes of workplace stress and what you can do about it
  • How we can create a culture that supports wellbeing
  • Having the right HR procedures and processes in place that help you deal effectively with problems when they come up.

Date:      Wednesday 11 May
Venue:   20 Hill Street, St Helier
