People often associate stress with workload, but issues that arise outside work are often the biggest triggers and contributors to mental ill-health – troubled relationships, financial worries or family problems. We spend so much of our time working that it’s almost inevitable we cannot leave our problems at the office door.
But is it fair for employers to ask questions about individuals’ personal circumstances? And is it appropriate or practical to offer support?
A range of wellbeing experts and HR practitioners explore these issues, debate best practice and provide practical guidance on a number of topics which could include:
•Types of stress and how they manifest at work.
•The implications of stress at work, and why work-life balance is an increasingly anachronistic idea.
•Ways of dealing with stress – should employers be proactive or stay out of it?
•How to equip employees to deal with stress at work (i.e Neyber)
