In the UK, an average of 13 million working days are lost due to stress each year.

Now, that’s a pretty big number.

Stress can have a big impact on everyone. But all too often, managers overlook workplace stress leaving employees' happiness and productivity dwindling.

So how do you go about making your office the place where stress is on the down and positivity is on the up? 

 

1. It’s time to chill-out

Let’s face it, at times work can get a bit overwhelming. Sometimes all you need is 15 minutes away from your desk to relax and regroup.

So, provide a quiet comfy space in your office. It’ll help them refresh and re-energise leaving them ready to tackle the rest of their day.   

 

2. Fun is the way to go

Whilst in the office, your employees co-workers make up their support system.

If your team isn't working so well together, it’s bound to cause stress.

Try organising fun team activities to help build strong relationships. This can really help to stamp out stress on a more regular basis throughout the year.

 

3. Listen!

It might sound simple, but the main thing you can do to help decrease your employees stress levels is by listening to them.

Sometimes, all your workers need is a chance to share their worries and concerns.

This way, you can find out exactly what’s causing their stress and start to offer the kind of fixes they actually want. 

 

And don’t forget, a lot of the time stress isn’t work related. So don’t overlook solutions to help solve your employee's external stress.
