Stress Management At Work Training

As the second most common cause of employee absence, the HSE estimates the cost to society of workplace stress is £4 billion each year, with 13.5 million working days lost due to work related stress in 2017. By implementing stress management systems at work, you can help create a more productive, healthy workforce and save money.

As an employer, you are legally obliged to assess the risk of stress-related ill health and take action to control that risk. In the event that an employee successfully makes a claim against their employer for not protecting them against work related stress, the financial and PR implications are significant.

In addition to workplace stress surveys, stress management coaching and stress management training for managers, Protostar also provide a free 8 page booklet on stress management at work, for employers to distribute to their staff.

Stress Coaching

Stress coaching from Protostar UK

Stress is cumulative and doesn’t respect the boundaries of work and home, however if your employee truly seems to be suffering from work related stress then our stress coaching can help to support them.

During the coaching sessions, we help the individual to create a stress trigger diary, where they record when they were stressed and what had just happened at that point. Once we have a better idea of the triggers, the coaching and stress management tips begin.

Typically we will help the individual to
  • Recognize symptoms,
  • See things in perspective
  • Relax
  • Be more mindful
  • Identify coping strategies
  • Identify avoidance strategies
  • Confront individuals
  • Make difficult decisions

This is coaching, not counseling so individuals are also advised to see their doctor to ensure a holistic approach is taken.
