Stress is increasingly a factor in lost working days lost and the overall reduction in employee effectiveness. It is important for all employees to recognise the importance of understanding stress and the guidance required to manage employees effectively to minimise risk.
This qualification seeks to advise and guide those interested in protecting themselves and their workforce from the damaging effects of stress. It is relevant to all staff but is particularly appropriate for those who deal with the public, work to deadlines, are in a supervisory position and provide services or training. This course will prepare employees to look carefully at their own work activities and contribute to the development of strategies to combat work related stress, in co-operation with their managers and supervisors.
This is a half day course which includes individual self-assessment.
