What a privilege to be able to make up some Christmas gift bags for a wonderful charity for the homeless. The inspire team worked so hard and we were able to donate 140 gift bags. A big thank you to all the retail outlets who donated.
Acas have announced that stress accounts for around 35% of all work related ill health cases and 43% of all working days lost due to ill health. I have seen this for myself in the 20 years of delivering stress management programmes for organisations. Many of the organisations I work with do take the well-being of their employees seriously, but some try to equip their employees with stress management skills only after situations have arisen. Let’s focus on making stress management a fundamental skill to be taught to our employees early on in their careers, not only when something goes wrong.
