Work-related stress affects both employers and employees.
Managing workplace stress can reduce illness and absenteeism, improve workplace relations and productivity, and help you avoid making bad business decisions. UK law requires that employers take reasonable steps to protect employees from stress. A key component of the employer response is having a stress at work policy. IoD members can request a template stress at work policy from the IoD Business Information Service: Request Template Stress At Work Policy (Please note that ordering this template policy will make use of one IAS enquiry credit)
