Today is National Stress Awareness Day! And we’d like to highlight the importance of helping alleviate stress in the workplace.
Even in the most upbeat company cultures and environments, staff can still get stressed out about their personal finances.
Don’t underestimate the impact of a compassionate approach!
Learn how an innovative wellbeing initiative can address workplace stress, providing the support and understanding employees needs.
Here at Lifetime we would encourage everyone who is suffering from stress and anxiety to talk to someone who may be able to help them in some way.
As well as the cost of living crisis, stress, anxiety and depression are prevalent for all kinds of other reasons too, including potential job losses and other financial concerns.
And this is where a conversation with a professional is crucial. It could lead to help, guidance and advice that may play a key part in alleviating your worries.
For many, financial worries directly impact their daily life, with stress causing a lack of sleep and potentially other mental or physical health problems. Job losses are one major area of concern, but worry over finances can also lead to poor levels of engagement and concentration at work, low productivity levels, and higher rates of absenteeism.
