The EssentialSkillz Stress Essentials course highlights the most common causes of stress, emphasising that what one person finds stressful, another may not.
It looks at different reactions individuals can have when faced with a stressful situation, exploring the combination of physical, emotional, cognitive and behavioural responses that can be involved.
The course also looks at how this combination can lead to specific health problems and challenges.
Stress can be caused by and affect all aspects of our lives and no one is immune. If we allow stress to become a negative influence, it can have a severe impact. HSE statistics show that nearly 10 million working days were lost in the UK because of work-related stress, at a cost of nearly £5.5 billion to the UK economy.
To ensure the wellbeing of your employees, it is essential to understand and recognise common causes of stress. Work-related stress can develop when an employee is unable to cope with the pressures being placed on them at work.
This might be down to an excessive workload, lack of flexibility, a lack of support or feeling uncomfortable in the workplace. The online course explains four models commonly used in analysing work-related stress.
The course also demonstrates practical tips and techniques to help relieve and manage stress, from reducing the buildup of stress on a day to day basis to finding new ways to relax and provides information about where to find advice and support.
