Stress, depression or anxiety account for a huge 51% of all work-related ill health cases and 55% of all working days lost due to work-related ill health. It’s not just the people who feel this way that are impacted, it also has a big effect on business and our economy.
Recognising the signs of stress will help employers to take steps to prevent, reduce and manage stress in the workplace. Do the right thing and protect your workers from work-related stress.
