Nowadays, it is more important than ever to be able to spot the signs of stress and burnout in the workplace and offer support to your employees and tackle them as an employer.

Stress Awareness Month has been held every April since 1992 to raise awareness of the causes and cures of stress.

  • 17 million working days are currently lost to work-related stress, depression or anxiety in the UK
  • 33% of staff say that high levels of stress impact their productivity.
  • 19% or UK works claim that their employer has put no measures in place to relieve work stress.

While small amounts of stress can help keep us alert, motivated, and more efficient, constant and unhealthy amounts of workplace stress can lead to employee upset, disengagement, and burnout.

Subsequently, it’s important for staff, managers and employers to be more open to discussions about stress and identify ways of alleviating it.

As part of stress awareness month, Concorde asks you to be aware of the signs of stress in themselves, friends, colleagues, and family. It is so important that we’re aware of how each other is feeling. Recognising the ‘red flags’ of stress can help us spot when someone may need support.

Here at Concorde, we support, care and encourage our employees to have a healthy work-life balance and discuss their problems with us aiming to help and support them as much as possible.
