altThe facts and figures about work related stress are baffling. With an average of 23 lost work days a year per stress related case in companies the numbers add up to £11.3 million for the UK in the year 2013/2014. All of these numbers add to the total sum of nearly £ 6.5 billion on costs related to this problem. Shocking numbers all together. Investigating this stress absolutely can affect the bottom line of your business. Managers promoted into positions with no management development training put in place to support this transition, too few staff, high competition from the marketplace are just some of the reasons. How can you differentiate your business from the rest and be seen as an employer of choice?

Taking some time to review the health and wellbeing of your workforce and what can be done as a company is crucial. What behaviours can you see? What do your attendance and retention figures tell you? You don’t want to be unconsciously creating the script for the next Horrible Boss Movie.
