Stress Risk Assessments: Must-knows For Business Owners

About 11 million working days are lost per year due to stress, depression, and anxiety, causing significant financial losses to organisations both directly through absenteeism and indirectly through presenteeism (employees attending work even when they’re too unwell to), poor morale, decreased productivity, increased accidents and increased likelihood of workplace disputes.

As a business owner, you’ve got a legal responsibility to protect employees from stress at work – so while you might not be able to ease stress from outside the workplace, you can try and prevent work from causing more problems. It’s crucial for you to build a stress risk assessment with the help of your employees.

We’ve put together a handy free guide all about stress risk assessments, how you can write one and how to support employees going through tough times. Simply leave your details on this form to get it straight to your inbox!
