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.
