stress in organizations

Stress is one of the leading causes of sickness absence. Two-fifths of employers overall (52% in the public sector) report that stress-related absence has increased over the past year. The most common cause of stress, as in previous years, is workload. In 2013 it appears to be even more of an issue. Other top causes of stress at work include management style, non-work factors such as relationships and family, relationships at work and considerable organisational change/restructuring. Without the right interventions, the effects of stress can be costly to an organisation.
Our programme can be tailored according to the needs of your organisation, however the basic format of the programme is the same. We run a one day workshop which provides a core set of information and tools. In addition each delegate receives a session of one-to-one confidential coaching before and after the workshop. To help you develop your skills further we offer half day Resilience Seminars which focus on specific topics according to demand. As the programme develops, we will also provide you with access to our dedicated Members site.
Initial work with organisations focuses on building individual resilience, however we aim to build a lasting consultative relationship. Should you wish to take resilience to the next level, we offer programmes which focus on team, and ultimately organisational resilience.
