We all know that stress leads to reduced productivity – and at its most extreme is can result in absenteeism, grievances and low morale.
As HR we champion the message that a happy workforce is a productive one.
However, it is not always easy to know who is stressed in our organisations as stress can affect people in different ways, and it isn’t always visible.
Organisations are often left wondering how they can manage stress and put into place strategies which help manage team dynamics, creating resilience within our workplaces.
Emma O’Connor, Head of Training at Boyes Turner LLP and trainer and author Geraldine Joaquim of Mind Your Business discuss their recent Managing Stress and Building Resilience training event and explain how we can manage not just our own stress and stressors, but also how to build resilience within our teams whilst developing initiatives and driving engagement and productivity.
