Workplace stress affects employee wellbeing and performance. We identify five key sources of stress at work - and how HR can tackle them.
Today is World Mental Health Day, with companies, politicians, charities and the public all bringing attention to the vital importance that our mental health has in every area of life. More specifically, mental health is one of the most pressing issues facing the UK workforce, with the TUC claiming that record numbers of workers are suffering with stress or work-related anxiety.
Tuesday 10th October marks World Mental Health Day and today our CEO Paul Devoy signed up to Time To Change’s Employer Pledge. By doing this, Paul hopes to demonstrate IIP’s ongoing commitment to ensuring that employees feel supported when facing mental health problems. Time to Change’s latest campaign ‘In Your Corner’, encourages us all to look out for our colleagues, should they be dealing with a mental health issue.
It can often feel like we spend as much time in the office as we do at home, and as much time with work colleagues as we do with our own families. This can be great for those of us lucky enough to work in a supportive and friendly environment, but for others who aren’t so lucky, this fact can cause concern and stress, particularly when it comes to discussing health and wellbeing.
