Why it’s Worth Investing in Stress Awareness

Why it’s Worth Investing in Stress Awareness in 2024

April is Stress Awareness Month, and the 2024 focus is to talk about stress and it’s effect on people. Doing this raises awareness, helps people to ensure they don’t feel alone and enables sharing of things that are helpful.

I often hear from HR and People Managers in organisations who tell me that their people say they’re stressed or struggling with workload, overwhelm and wellbeing …. BUT ‘don’t have time’ to do anything about it.

This is just one of the reason why I’m sharing information that can help you make a decision on whether it’s worth investing in stress awareness.

The last few years has changed how we connect and communicate, and although it’s also taught us resilience and shined a spotlight on our ability to adapt, it’s also impacted our emotional, psychological and social wellbeing, so talking about how we feel is important.

Employers have a ‘duty of care’ to ensure that employees are not subjected to excessive stress in the workplace, this also means arming employees and leaders with the tools they need to manage stress effectively.

As well as costing businesses money through work-related stress and mental illness absences (£26 billion per annum in fact), stress thought to be responsible for almost half of working days lost in Britain due to health issues.
