The World Health Organization has declared stress to be one of the biggest health risk factors of the 21st century.

In today’s organizations stress has become a key factor in the management of human resources. Studies show that the number of stress related sick days has dramatically increased in the industrialized countries over the past decade.

Absenteeism and presenteeism is costing Australian businesses over $10 billion a year with an average of 3.2 days lost per employee per year due to stress related causes.

The burden of workplace stress on employees is significant and represents an area in which preventative measures produce strong economic and productivity gains for employers and the broader economy.

The Importance of this workshop

In today’s times many people are working under prolonged conditions of stress with little support on how to manage and reduce it.

Factors such as work pressures, leadership demands, job insecurity, conflict and cultural issues, loss of focus and continuous interruptions are some of the major contributors of low productivity and attitudinal derailment.

When people aren’t thinking constructively they cannot operate at their personal best and engage effectively with their colleagues and customers
