Business leaders 'should be aware of employee stress'
It is extremely important that business executives are aware of stress levels among their employees and concentrate on keeping wellbeing levels high across the workforce, an expert has suggested.
Annette Greenwood, a life coach and mentor, said mental health issues are a growing problem in the British workplace and urged executives to take measures to keep their staff happy and healthy.
"Regular supervisions with individuals are crucial to supporting their mental health needs, including professional support such as life coaching or counselling," she indicated.
Signs of stress can include clocking up a great deal of flexi-time or working extremely long hours in order to keep up with a heavy workload, Ms Greenwood suggested.
Staff who are struggling to deal with their schedule should be given help and advice to overcome this problem, concluded the life coach.
Members of the Engage for Success campaign recently wrote an open letter to the Times warning that only one-third of people are currently fully engaged with their company.
