Work-Related Stress accounts for over a third of all new incidences of ill health.
Each case of stress-related ill health leads to an average of 30.9 working days lost per year.
A total of 12.8 million working days were lost to stress, depression and anxiety in 2004/5. Employers are required by law to ensure that employees do not become ill as a result of their work and stress is becoming increasingly recognised as a significant factor that can contribute to employee ill-health.

'Personnel Today' in 2006 conducted a corporate study that highlighted:
  • 92% of companies are likely to invest in healthier working practices
  • 75% in Employee Assistance Programmes
  • 72% in health screening over the next five to ten years

In addition, 97% of senior HR professionals believe stress at work threatens the future health of UK workforce. 36% of employers predicted that the health of UK workers would decline in the next five to ten years. Employees are your company's most valuable asset Research shows that healthy employees have more energy, are generally more positive and take less sick days.
The corporate consequence for failing to recognise employee health and wellbeing is becoming increasingly significant.

Not only will our consultancy service provide an invaluable employee benefit but it may also help protect your company against possible litigation.

Your duties as an employer are to comply with the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations (1999) to assess the risk of stress-related ill health arising from work activities; and Under the Health and Safety at Work etc Act (1974) to take measures to control that risk. Undertaking a proper risk assessment for stress should help you avoid prosecution and litigation.

In support of this, Vibrant Spirit will help you meet your compliance requirements through the provision of:
  • On-site Stress Management Training programmes
  • On-going Case Management and Rehabilitation Strategies

Effectively addressing workplace stress is known to reduce staff turnover, absence, sickness and customer complaints. It can also lead to increased employee morale and improved performance at work. Vibrant Spirit can help you to manage work-related stress issues and episodes.
