Employee stress is a primary contributor to burnout, low morale, physical, mental and emotional issues, and in terms of your bottom line, increased turnover and higher insurance premiums. Therefore, it is important to provide your employees with tools for helping them to manage their stress.
There are generally three primary reactions to stress. In some cases, stress will create a physical reaction. In this case, an employee may find that stress causes headaches, backaches or stomach pain. The second possible reaction to stress is a mental and/or an emotional one. If an employee has a mental/emotional reaction to stress, they may have difficulty concentrating or worry a great deal. Finally, an employee may have a combination of both.
There are numerous stress antidotes that your employees can do that are very simple to complete. Here are a few examples:
