How I manage stress in my workplace
What can your employer do to help manage stress at work? Putting people at the heart of your business will encourage productivity, engagement and creativity. Ensuring your employees and colleagues are supported at work with the tools to equip them to succeed in their role will allow for a positive workplace culture. I suggest the following:
- Create a culture that encourages positive mental health and encourages employees to speak freely and/or open up when they are struggling.
- Be approachable and non-judgemental. Offering a listening ear will help employees to feel valued and supported.
- Offer workplace adjustments and/or flexible working hours temporarily to help you manage.
- Undertake a Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) course to help notice the signs of mental distress and assist with support.
