Stress Awareness for Managers
There is a legal requirement placed on employers to ensure that stress in the workplace is properly managed and that a risk assessment is undertaken. Managers are most likely to undertake the risk assessment and manage stress in the workplace and therefore need to be properly equipped to do so.
A recent survey by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) on absence management found that respondents cited management style as one of the top three causes of work-related stress.
About 1 in 5 people say they find their work either very or extremely stressful and over half a million people believe that work-related stress actually made them ill. On average, a case of stress-related ill health leads to 29 working days being lost and in one recent year, a total of 13.4 million working days were lost to either stress, depression or anxiety.
Stress Awareness for Managers training from Praxis42 can help managers and supervisors to recognise the common causes of stress. It also informs them of the positive actions they can take to better manage stress, by using a risk assessment approach.
The training uses a best practice approach and the latest guidance concerning management competencies and behaviours.
