We all know what work-stress feels like, and we’ve probably all been in situations at work where we’ve thought there must be an easier, lower-stress way of doing things. Individual actions, mindfulness apps and lunch-time yoga will only get your workplace part of the way. For long-lasting, systemic change, employers need to look at organisational and environmental factors – things like support from managers and colleagues, role clarity, relationships and change management.
Busting stress is good for everyone – employees are happier and more productive; employers benefit from a more engaged workforce and ensure they meet their legislative requirements in providing a healthy, safe working environment.
