What stress?

Do your employees complain about stress? If not, think yourself lucky. Stress seems to have become endemic and epidemic. Whether or not work situations are generally and consistently stressful, employees are being taught that stress is something they should expect to suffer. So, it might be wise to practise some stress reduction techniques - even if you are not fully convinced that it is a real problem. So make sure your employees take their breaks. Make sure you are aware of what they perceive as problems - and do something about them. Make sure they all know what is expected of them, and where it fits into the wider scheme of things. Make sure they know they are valued. Either you will ease stress, avoid it ... or simply end up with more contented workers. what have you got to lose?
