We have a problem


The World Health Organisation has declared stress to be the health epidemic of the 21st century.


... and the UK government have reported that mental health problems in the workplace are worse than in any other part of wider society. Psychological stress is a precursor to many of our most common physical ailments. In 2017, half a million people in the UK reported that work-related stress was making them ill, according to the UK’s Health and Safety Executive. This amounts to nearly 57% of all sick days, and the number is rising.

With stress now the most common cause for long-term absence, and with 1 out of every 5 employees reporting feeling ‘very’, or ‘extremely stressed’ at work, it is crucial for every organisation to apply wellbeing strategies and address workplace stress, to protect their employees, their organisations and their bottom line.
