A practical approach to reducing workplace stress and improving mental wellbeing.
May 21 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
Speaker: Lucy Atkinson, Business Support Manager, Crams, Scarborough
Work-related stress is a serious issue; it is often considered a ‘silent’ illness. Employers and managers may not realise that their 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. This is a topic that Lucy is passionate about. She is looking forward to sharing practical ways of managing workplace stress with our members.
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.
Members are encouraged to take part in an interactive discussion with speakers during the meeting and to network with other members over tea or coffee and biscuits after the meeting.
There will be a committee meeting after the main meeting.
