Stress Awareness for Employees
About 1 in 5 people say that they find their work either very or extremely stressful and over half a million people report that they experience work-related stress at a level they believe has actually made them ill.
On average, a case of stress-related ill health leads to 29 working days being lost. In one recent year a total of 13.4 million working days were lost due to either stress, depression or anxiety.
In addition the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) increasingly expect to see that organisations are managing workplace stress following their guidance.
