Stress is one of the leading causes of work illness, affecting one in five people today. It is an issue which cannot be ignored.
Many employee benefit providers now offer integrated solutions and products which have an element of stress counselling to add value to their proposition and deliver a fundamental level of support for stress in the workplace.
Others providers offer online stress tests, where employees can measure the effect stress has on them, learn some useful facts about stress in the workplace and gain some expert tips on how to reduce stress levels.
Increased levels of support can be provided by telephone or face to face counselling sessions through an Employee Assistance Programme.
