Stress Indiciator Tool
The latest statistics from HSE suggest mental illness and work-related stress are on the increase.
In the last year alone, 0.6 million workers across Great Britain reported experiencing work-related stress, depression or anxiety.
This puts the total loss to the British economy at over £5 billion per year.
The HSE online Stress Indicator Tool is a modern and proactive way to help manage this issue.
The tool surveys employees and uses their responses to understand the organisations risk profile for work-related stress.
All questions have been carefully curated by policy experts and are centred around the six key areas of work design that, if not managed properly, are known to be the likely root causes.
There are 4 main stages of using the tool:
#1 building the survey using the friendly set-up wizard and tailoring the options to suit your organisation.
#2 once built and you are happy with the question-set, send the survey out to your workforce.
#3 You can then study your results and assess your performance overall against the management standards.
#4 Conducting focus groups using the report is an excellent way to identify improvements and reduce work-related stress.
The stress indicator tool’s systematic approach immediately removes the barriers of not being able to do something about this growing issue.
The latest research shows an extremely positive case for employee wellbeing programmes - with an average return of £5 for every £1 spent.
Remember, everyone has the right to come home safe and well from their job.
