So why is there still such a stigma about stress? Surely we all want to feel great, happy, perform well, feel energized and engaged when we are at work – in ourselves, our staff & our colleagues? YES surely? So whose job is it to provide stress management coaching – because all of us from time to time need some coaching.
Stress Management Coaching is a highly specialist area and it has a key part to play in developing an appropriate supportive framework for employee wellbeing yet is often left ignored. By taking a proactive approach to employee wellbeing and reducing workplace stressors you will also improve the performance, resilience and productivity of your people. You may also limit your chance of litigation and you probably will reduce the costs associated with stress related sickness absence too!
The thing is, some of the most commonly cited causes of stress – long work hours, excessive workload, tight deadlines, and poor relationships with managers and colleagues are often preventable! So if we remove the stigma, focus on the positives; the outcomes and offer coaching in workplace then these stressors will be identified, managed and addressed.
In a recent survey, Mind found that more than half of workers rated their jobs as fairly or very stressful, so it’s not surprising that HR professionals are seeing more staff coming through their doors seeking help for stress.
Health Miles, a workplace health engagement company and part of Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Group, found in a recent study a strong link between the wellbeing / vitality of an organisation and the wellbeing of its employees.
