Too stressed to talk?

23 February 2009
The topic of stress at work has perhaps unsurprisingly risen up the agenda as a result of current economic woes. A survey out today from insurers Aon says many companies may be underestimating the level of stress in their staff, which could damage company performance if not dealt with effectively. Only 30 per cent of staff said they would talk to their manager if they felt stressed, preferring instead to discuss it with their GP, a friend or family. The firm is advising companies to offer “wellness” programmes for employees that could include promoting sports and healthy eating, sponsoring sports teams and offering complementary therapies such as massages. Does your organisation provide stress-busting activities?
