Why Businesses Need to Rethink Stress In The Workplace

In any organisation, at any level, stress can have an impact on our ability to be productive, our work relationships and mental and physical wellbeing. While stress is a normal part of day-to-day life, how we view and manage it impacts our body and depends on our daily habits and the choices.

We can't always control why we experiencing stress at work. What we can control is how our body and mind will react to stress.

Our evolutionary development provided us with this amazing survival response. The flip side of this well tuned survival machine is our modern day work life can have us triggering this survival response multiple times throughout the day. Our body was never designed to be in the fight, flight or freeze mode for long periods. Eventually, in the workplace, stress can take its toll on staff health, productivity and engagement.

Employees suffering from stress-related disorders can have an impact on a businesses bottom line through absenteeism, staff turnover and loss of productivity.

So, how do you support staff in times of stress?
