Managing Stress at Work

Cost: £1,050 + VAT for up to 15 delegates

Most people expect to encounter some form of pressure when they get to work. Deadlines, bosses, targets — they all play a part. Some independent studies even suggest that a little pressure helps us work to the best of our ability.

But too much pressure is bad for us, in any dosage. Long term pressure can turn into stress and have negative impacts on our health and happiness, both at home and at work.

The government is so concerned about employee psychology, it's made it mandatory for organisations to assess risk from mental health issues:

"Whether work is causing the [mental] health issue or aggravating it, employers have a legal responsibility to help their employees. Work-related mental health issues must be assessed to measure the levels of risk to staff. Where a risk is identified, steps must be taken to remove it or reduce it as far as reasonably practicable." ~


Our one-day Managing Stress at Work course is basic emotional training that's suitable for all staff. It provides an opportunity to understand how the HSE defines stress, its effect in the workplace and how to deal with it.

Key benefits of stress awareness training

Companies get to know how to initiate a positive attitude and approach to reducing stress and enhancing wellbeing throughout their organisation. Our course:

  • helps train staff to recognise stress in self and others to attain HSE compliance;
  • discusses early indicators of stress and its possible causes;
  • will help reduce presenteeism and the further possibility of bottom-line eating stress-related absence;
  • increases self awareness, developing delegates' positive attitude to health and wellbeing;
    • this indirectly improves performance and productivity throughout the organisation;
  • explains how to create a personal action plan underpinning the course values and learning.

Course overview

Stress has many subtle key signs and indicators as well as obvious ones. Staff might otherwise miss these signs — or worse, be unprepared to deal with them — if they don't take a bespoke course. In our training, delegates learn:

  • the difference between pressure and stress;
  • the personal and external causes of stress;
  • how negative behaviours relate to ill health outcomes from stress;
  • the thought process behind wellbeing and resilience;
  • useful, easy to use strategies, including coping strategies, that they can apply immediately;
  • how empowered they feel when they take responsibility for their own health and wellbeing;
  • hints and tips to proactively manage stress.
