I run affordable CPD events for other professionals. This includes seminars, workshops and lectures.
Stress-related absence in the workplace loses companies millions of pounds every year. It’s far more common in today’s society as more and more demands are placed on the employee.Stress causes more long-term absence in the workplace than repetitive strain injury and medical conditions such as cancer. Employees say this is down to increased workloads and management styles, according to the survey by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and healthcare provider Simplyhealth.
Although stress itself is not an illness, if it increases or continues for too long it can result in physical illness.
A certain amount of pressure can be motivating. It helps us to achieve in life and improves our performance. Stress is a natural reaction when this pressure becomes excessive.
The information given to employees and managers in my seminars can provide better coping mechanisms and reduce days lost due to stress- related ailments. This helps improve performance and organisation, ultimately generating more revenue for companies.
Awareness created in the seminars, and the key coping skills I’ll give to employees will increase individual well-being and place less financial burden on the company.
