Stress may be defined as "The reaction people have to an imbalance between the demands they perceive to be placed upon them and the resources they have to cope".

According to The Royal College of General Practitioners, some 80% of patients sitting in a doctor's surgery are there because of a stress-related or psychosomatic illness.
According to The Health & Safety Executive, 360 million working days are lost annually in the United Kingdom and half of these absences are stress-related. The results of a national survey into stress at work reveal that every day of the week 270,000 people are absent from work with a stress-related illness.

Employers have a duty of care to manage stress in their workplace and employees who have been found to have suffered due to stress which has not been managed have legal recourse to make claims against their employer. A healthy workplace will bring employers and employees improved productivity, lower rates of sickness absence and less illness”. (NHS White Paper).

Employers who implement effective stress management programmes are more likely to:

  • avoid costly legislation
  • retain good staff
  • reduce absenteeism
  • improve productivity / efficiency

Again, according to the Society of Stress Managers, the campaign ‘Our Healthier Nation’ conducted in the year 2000 by the United Kingdom Department of Health identified stress as the biggest cause of absence from work after muscular-skeletal disorders. This was confirmed by the Confederation of British Industry in its survey, ‘Focus on Absence’, again conducted in the year 2000, which identified stress as the second highest cause of absence from work. According to the CBI Survey, absence from work was now costing business and industry an average of £13 billion a year.”

Many well-documented cases of very large settlements have been made by employers to their staff and these are well documented at the UK Government’s Health and Safety Executive website at www.hse.gov.uk/index.htm
