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.
