Stress continues to have a major impact in organisations. According to HSE research, the total number of working days lost due to this condition last year was 9.9 million days with stress accounting for 43% of all working days lost due to ill health. Despite this huge impact, CIPD research shows that many organisations are failing to take adequate steps to proactively identify and reduce stress in the workplace and many struggle to recognise and support staff who are already suffering from stress-related symptoms.
This programme has therefore been designed to help HR professionals identify how they can best support their organisation in preventing, reducing and managing stress. It recognises the role that HR can play in helping develop proactive strategies to reduce incidents of work-related stress as well as helping individuals to cope with or recover from stressful situations. It also recognises the important role that HR has in equipping managers with the necessary knowledge, skills and confidence to manage stress within their team appropriately. The workshop provides participants with a wealth of ideas, strategies and tools to use within their organisations. It draws on current research, best practice guidance, lessons from case law and learning from a wide range of organisations in the form of case studies.
