How your Managers can improve wellbeing

The latest Health & Wellbeing at Work Survey shows that work is good for us! Where we enjoy quality, good work then this benefits our wellbeing overall.

So, what happens when it goes wrong?

The research shows that the biggest reported causes of stress at work are 62% of workers citing unmanageable workloads and 43% citing poor management style.

Your Line Managers really do play a crucial role in the wellbeing and effectiveness of your staff yet:

  • Less than 50% of businesses train their Managers to handle stress or have sensitive conversations with their teams.
  • 80% of Line Managers are responsible for short term absence with only 56% reporting any training being provided.
  • 40% of Line Manages are responsible for Long term absence with few reporting any training or support.

 Although we provide guidance and support to businesses, we also recognise that your Managers would benefit from additional training on key areas such as Absence Management and our workshop programme offers you low cost training which only takes your Managers out of the business for ½ day.

 Managers leave with an improved knowledge and practical tips on how to be more effective in tackling both absenteeism and presenteeism.

Sarah and the team at Quest have provided us HR support since January 2013.

Quest Consulting Services provided us with a comprehensive employment structure with contacts and a handbook and have been on hand to help me deal with the occasional issue I have faced with team members through their telephone support service.

As our personal Consultant, Sarah provides a quality, professional and complete service which is great value for money.

Sarah has transformed our HR and has introduced systems that have taken lots of hassle away from staffing issues within our company.

We have worked with Sarah and her team for 5 years and in this time our business has grown considerably. With telephone support available for all our Managers as they need it plus Sarah and her team proactively keeping us updated on changes in legislation we are reassured that we are in safe hands.

The HR software that Quest implemented also helps us keep on top of the routine aspects of HR such as holiday bookings, recording absence, holding personnel records which then allows Sarah and her team easy access to give us relevant advice.

Our Managers have also benefited from workshops run by Sarah to help develop their skills on handling issues such as disciplinary, appraisals, recruitment etc….

The support of Quest is invaluable and provides a much more cost effective solution than employing a HR Manager in house.

Why would anybody NOT have Sarah working 'alongside' their business?

I've known Sarah for many years and she's always been there for me and the business when her wealth of knowledge has been called upon.

We have used Sarah and her team to handle our contracts, handbook and Health & Safety and they are readily available on the telephone when needed or on site at our premises.

Highly recommended.
