We recently sent out a survey with the aim to further our understanding of the key challenges that organisations are facing when it comes to workplace wellbeing and stress.
The responses have helped us gain invaluable insights into how stress is impacting the modern workplace. The response suggests there are many some common themes that run through most organisations.
Of the ‘another answer’ responses, one of the main areas of concern is presenteeism.
The survey highlighted the key outcomes the respondents hope to achieve by combating, reducing and overcoming workplace stress. These included:
- Reduced costs and creating a better work environment for staff
- Delivering business performance with engaged and energised employees, who are able to apply their strengths and passions whilst balancing all aspects of their lives
- Greater engagement as team will be happier
- Develop methods of reducing workloads and workplace pressures whilst still providing a competent/professional service to clients
- Happier workforce
- Better focus
- Happy staff and less time off for sickness
- A better place to work
- A happier, healthier and more productive place to work in
- Improved wellbeing and engagement
- Happier people
- To have a better working environment
- Increasing productivity and wellbeing
- Openness and ability to treat stress symptoms in a non-accusatory way
- Improve morale
- Happiness and eagerness to be involved at work rather than watching your back and worrying about colleagues being favoured more highly
- Improved teamwork
- Attract and retain the best staff
- Be an employer of choice
- Reduce our risk exposure to issues such as suicide
