Employers and Employees

If you are a stressed out Employee or and finding it hard to cope in a demanding job, failure to take action will likely lead to a deterioration in your mental and physical health as well as your performance and productivity as you struggle to keep going. Anxiety, Depression and other issues can take hold and may result in extended periods of sickness and time off which can only add to the problem.

 

You may be a Business Owner, HR professional or Manager who can see your staff are struggling or stressed. You might be worrying about productivity suffering through staff absences. You may or may not have Occupation Health support in place but need a more flexible support system to help and assist your staff to perform to the best of their capability and ensuring that psychological and secondary issues are managed and supported efficiently at an early stage.

 

If you need assistance in all or any of these areas, Contact Working Minds to discuss a Solution Package to suit your needs.
