Managers 'must engage employees to combat stress at work'
Sum - Prevention is the key to tackling stress at work, an expert has said.
Engaging employees is essential for managers wanting to eradicate widespread stress at work from their organisation.
That is according to a spokesperson for the European Academy of Occupational Health Psychology (EAOHP), who believes it is vital for managers to communicate and interact with their members of staff in order to avoid excessive levels of mental anxiety in their working environment.
Recently, a study conducted by Aviva established that 30 per cent of all employees across the UK experience so much pressure within their job that they do not feel able to take a lunch break.
However, the EAOHP official went on to indicate that this need not be the case as "prevention is the key" when it comes to combating professional tension, as is a "long-term commitment" from bosses.
"Preventing and managing the factors that can lead to stress is the only sustainable way employers can alleviate worker stress," the expert added.
