In the UK, over 13 million working days are lost every year because of
stress. Work-related stress is a major problem for businesses and organisations across the UK and accounts for over a third of all new incidences of ill health. According to research commissioned by the HSE, around 500,000 people in the UK experience work-related stress and at a level they believe is making them ill. This can have major impacts on other elements of business such as productivity, organisational image, health and safety and morale.
Dealing with stress-related claims also consumes vast amounts of management time. Aside from the obvious humanitarian and ethical considerations, there are strong economic and financial reasons for organisations to manage and reduce stress at work.
Whatever numbers or statistics are quoted, the cost to an organisation of not tackling stress and its effect on both the individual and the organisation are colossal.
