Everyone experiences stress. There is positive stress, like excitement about a pending promotion or presentation and negative stress such as dealing with Covid, feeling overwhelmed, job loss or simply work-life integration. Our reactions to stress are varied, but it’s no surprise that chronic stress can wreak havoc with our lives and our health. While some of us seem to let stress roll off our back, for others…well, let’s just say, it isn’t as easy.
In 2022, manufacturers are still dealing with labor shortages, productivity demands, supply chain issues and challenges with customers. Covid has only added to anxiety, depression and other mental health issues which remain on the rise. It’s likely your business may be experiencing difficulties as a result. Perhaps, now more than ever, we all need to be looking for ways to minimize health issues, prevent burnout and promote employee well-being.
- US businesses lose up to $300 billion yearly as a result of workplace stress (AIS, 2019)

While there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution, being proactive about investing in the health, safety and well-being of your workplace can be critical. It can also be a way to attract new employees as well as retain those with the greatest level of knowledge. So, while your team has likely discussed, “Are our employees healthy or having issues?”…Have you also considered, “Do our internal business policies and practices also promote employee health and well-being?”
This 2-hour stress management session will provide information on resources to help both your employees and your business stay healthy. We will look at the causes of stress, and ways to minimize its effect. We will discuss the changing employer-employee relationship. We will address which practices should be in place to create a workplace that is proactive about managing stress and be known as a business where people truly are the heart of your organization.
