Stress is characterized by a collection of symptoms that tend to affect the whole person.
It is true to say that we all live with a level of stress that we deal with easily but too much and the problems begin.
But when is ‘too much’?
The answer to this question is, of course, different for all of us, but usually it is when the demands exceed our ability to control or influence them.
Stress not only affects the individual.
According to NICE, the cost to employers each year is approximately £24 Billion whilst MIND suggests the whole economy is affected to the tune of £100 Billion.
Stress at work is seen as very important health and safety issue and employers are becoming increasingly aware of their responsibilities and the benefits to their company of tackling the issue.
