Burn-out, depression, risky lifestyle behaviour and other psycho-social issues become increasingly a human and economic reality to deal with as a company. Senior business leaders today view poor (mental) health as the number one driver of indirect costs. The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work identified a number of imminent psycho-social risks underlying these costs.
Work-related stress is one of the biggest health and safety challenges we face! Nearly one in four workers is affected by it. Between 50% and 60% of all lost working days are related to it. Employees are facing a higher workload, pressure and demands all together against a backdrop of increasing job insecurity.
Stress can cause illness and misery, both at work and at home. Stress may also compromise workplace safety, and contribute to other work-related health problems, such as musculoskeletal disorders.
The negative consequences of stress impact your workforce and as result undermine your bottom line and company image. The good news is that work-related stress can be dealt with in the same therapeutic way as other forms of stress.
