Stress Prevention Programme

A simple, rapid solution for transforming the effects of stress in the workplace

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) recently reported that between 2019 and 2023, the number of economically inactive working adults who have depression or anxiety has jumped by 40pc to hit 1.35 million – 386,000 more than before the pandemic began.

Stress and its mental and physical impacts is a pandemic on its own. Did you know that a UK-wide stress survey by the Mental Health Foundation reported that 74% of adults felt ‘overwhelmed’ or ‘unable to cope’.

How stress can impact the workplace

17 million working days were lost to stress and anxiety in 2021/22, before the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic even appeared.  Business and financial challenges, home schooling, furlough, loss, illness and being isolated from friends, family and colleagues have placed a huge burden on most of us.

In the workplace, stress can significantly impact performance. Common signs of stress include:


Lack of motivation

Problems with memory or concentration


Bad decision making

Feeling stressed or anxious isn’t just in the mind. Just some of the physical symptoms of stress can include:

Chest pain


Aches and pains

Poor immune system

Exhaustion or insomnia


Stomach problems

High blood pressure

Jaw clenching

Teeth grinding
