How workplace stress affects you

Stress can be helpful when it is part of a challenge that can motivate and give ambition. However, too much pressure can overload and impair an individual’s ability to make decisions, which can be made in haste or without consideration being given to the outcome. Workplace stress impacts on how we think, feel and act, so staff teams affected by stress will not work as well as they would if this was reduced.

Stress is defined by the HSE ‘as the adverse reaction people have to excessive pressures or other types of demand placed on them’.

Employers have a legal obligation to ensure the health, safety and welfare of their employees. In doing so employers should carry out a risk assessment that looks at work related stress and actions taken to reduce and manage this. As an employer, you are also required by law to assess the risk of stress-related ill health arising from work activities and take action to control that risk.

We work with your risk assessment, ensuring you are meeting the objectives within it. In fact, by working with us, you are adding to your risk assessment, in terms of investment in the wellbeing of your workforce. Our services such as workshops can be identified within your risk assessment as an action towards reducing stress.

Care and thought given to employees is the first step in meeting their health, safety and overall wellness. An organisation that addresses stress before it takes hold by creating a workplace environment that is proactive in caring for people is less likely to suffer the negative impacts of stress.

Organisations themselves grow and change and like individuals can be affected by stress, both internally and externally. If organisational stress is not addressed can reach the point where the organisation itself is not able to function as it once did or meet its operating objectives. Isn’t it right that you should be proactive in addressing this before it affects you?

Improving Communication

Successful organisations have open and effective communication, where the workforce is able to cooperate and communicate thoughts and feelings. Workers at all levels understand and are able to communicate the ethos, values and beliefs of the organisation so that the message is heard both inside and outside of the workplace.

A team that can communicate openly, feel that they are informed of and fully understand the organisations vision will feel more secure and motivated and will be more productive. Informed staff teams will have better attitudes than those less informed. Workers that feel heard and thought of are more likely to remain and grow with the organisation. Not only that but the organisation will become a desired place to work and staff retention will improve.

When people are able to fully understand their role, feel listened to and supported through open and transparent communication, they are less likely to suffer from stress related issues. Good communication is a building block for any organisation.
