9.9 million working days lost

imagesHT98SAWPA total of 9.9 million working days were lost due to stress in 2014/15, according to the Health and Safety Executive. Despite this, many businesses often operate a ‘fire-fighting’ approach to the management of stress at work, and only consider the importance of occupational health once stress affects an employee. However, a proactive approach can eliminate stress altogether; improving the wellbeing of employees and also boosting their productivity and efficiency.
