Why should your organisation consider managing stress?
The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) reported that in the last 12 months 40% of workers have reported an increase in stress levels. There was a significant increase in the number of employees reporting it as a problem, 57% in 2012 up from 48% in 2011. The most common reasons for an increase were given as:
- Management style
- Non-work stresses and relationships
- Relationships at work
The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development 2011 survey identified that stress is now the most common cause of long term sickness and Mind suggests that 26 billion pounds are lost every year by British businesses due to sickness absence and 8 billion of that could be saved by a greater awareness on the mental health of staff and employers. Corporate Stress management training helps you to handle stress positively and improves collaboration and communications to enrich your business. We take a collaborative client focused approach in the pragmatic application of stress management and ergonomic principles to help you to foster employee engagement in the pursuit of employee well-being and health.
How can Ergonomics in the Workplace benefit your organisation?
Because industry relies on human-centric for manual labour, line managers to run processes or administration to manage organisations, a well designed work places and ways of working which follow good ergonomic practise are the solution to good health and production. Work-related injuries are frequent, and most are avoidable when ergonomics are taken into consideration. Also to consider now are demographic change and changes to the default retirement age aimed at encouraging people to stay at work longer and the effects of this. Ergonomics has a large role to play in relation to objective assessment of physical and mental capacity, workplace design issues and work organisation. We have the skills to uncover and identify the problems associated with occupational physical injury, and can work along side in-house occupational team to resolve a whole range of complaints.
