Online Stress Coaching

Over 50% of sickness absence is as a result of stress both in the workplace and in the home. It doesn’t have to be this way. Our Employee Assistance Programme includes a stress assistance tool that any one of your employees can access anywhere, at any time.

What the Online Stress Audit tool does

Part of Peninsula’s health assured Employee Assistance Programme, the Online Stress Audit tool allows employees to enter their personal history before being asked a range of questions.

The Online Stress Audit tool will then produce clear reports on the employee’s stress levels at work. A stress audit will also recommend which EAP services may be beneficial to the employee, with advice on how to face their problems also provided.

Why invest in managing stress?

Employers have a legal duty to ensure all aspects of employee wellbeing – from health & safety at work to fair wages – are taken care of. However, when it comes to work-related stress, involvement is up to you.

While you have no legal obligation to help employees dealing with stress, they’ll see some real rewards if you do.

Detecting symptoms early on could prevent a severe case of stress down the line. Furthermore, reducing stress will lead to a reduction in absences.  

By taking a proactive approach to managing stress among employees, your workforce will notice how much you care. The knock-on effect is a team of dedicated, happy and healthy people ─ the goal at the heart of the EAP.

What does the EAP stress audit include?

  • Regular stress assessments to find employees at risk of developing stress, and any who are already displaying symptoms.
  • Access to employee helplines for advice on any personal problems.
  • Proactive intervention on the first day of stress-related absence.
  • Up to 8 sessions of face-to-face counselling with a stress coaching expert.
  • Advice for the employer on managing stress in the workplace, from workloads and policies to working environments.
  • Advice for employers regarding stress, sick pay, long term leave, or in extreme cases, dealing with an employment claim.

Peninsula’s Employee Assistance Programme is endorsed by the Stress Management Society. There has never been a simpler or more comprehensive way to combat work-related stress and help employees in coping with stress.
