Topic: A practical approach to reducing workplace stress and improving mental wellbeing

About the session
Work-related stress is a serious issue; it is often considered a ‘silent’ illness. You may not even know if your employees are struggling. However, the effects to them personally, or on business productivity have the potential to be just as damaging as more tangible workplace hazards. HSE statistics released for 2018 showed that 57% of all working days lost to illness were attributed to work-related stress. In the last 12 months, over 600,000 workers reported suffering from stress, depression and anxiety, worsened by work.
Lucy has over ten years of experience of providing IT support to a mixed portfolio of SME clients. She has an excellent understanding of the needs and dynamics of the modern workplace and has good communication skills. She is passionate about finding practical ways of reducing workplace and she is looking forward to sharing her ideas with our members.
