How Stress Affects Organisations

Stress within organisations can and often does lead to long term absenteeism and can quickly spread throughout the company. It can be especially damaging if you lose one of your key personnel for a lengthy period. Whether it affects a key member of staff or a number of staff on the shop floor it will affect the bottom line - your profits. The CBI estimate that absenteeism as a result of stress is costing British industry approximately £11.5 billion per year.



Another concern for organisations is the 'compensation culture' resulting in spurious claims by disgruntled employees who claim that their stress was caused by the unreasonable behaviour of their employers. Successful claims have been as high as £200,000.

In addition to the courts, the Health and Safety executive stipulate that companies do have a responsibility to their employees for the state of their mental health.

If you are concerned about your organisations vulnerability to the effects of stress and you want to:-

  • Protect your profits

This month's featured treatment

70% of men and 63% of women are obese or overweight.

1/3 of children aged 8 - 15 are overweight or obese.

Obesity accounts for 30,000 deaths a year.

Obesity has been linked to diabetes, heart disease, high levels of cholesterol, high blood pressure and strokes. It is also associated with higher rates of certain types of cancer.

95% of all dieters regain their weight after dieting because diets are short-term and not for life, they create the feeling of deprivation, are not practical or realistic and increase levels of body fat.

Your body responds to low calorie diets by assuming that it is experiencing a 'famine' period, so it slows your metabolism to conserve and store more fat.

Diets often exclude important food groups necessary for good health so even if you do lose weight you could be creating health problems for the future.

Talk to us about how the IdealYou weight loss programme help you lose weight using NLP, hypnotherapy and other techniques.
