Press Release-CCW-Stress Free Environments


In Equilibrium, stress management specialists, have been appointed by the Countryside Council for Wales (CCW) to deliver bespoke training courses for its 150 managers.

The organisation, which is the Government’s statutory advisor on sustaining the country’s outdoors and its wildlife, has introduced the courses in recognition of the importance of occupational health and the impact stress has in the workplace.   Following the initial programme for managers, which will be held over 2 months, the CCW intends to roll out the training courses to its remaining 400 staff members based at various locations throughout Wales.

Jan Lawrence, Director, In Equilibrium said, “The CCW has an extremely effective stress policy in place and the training courses are a natural extension of this programme.  Like many organisations, equipping managers to be aware of stress and how to help members of staff is an extremely useful skill to have and is beneficial to everyone in the organisation.”

The courses will be led by an experienced Business Psychologist and trainer.

Laura Cunniff, People and Pay Manager from Countryside Council for Wales added, “CCW is committed to protecting the health, safety and welfare of its employees and this duty extends to mental as well as physical well being. CCW recognises that workplace stress is a health and safety issue and acknowledges the importance of identifying and reducing stressors in the workplace. The roll out of stress workshops to managers has made them better informed about definitions, causes, symptoms and techniques for managing stress. Our managers have found the workshops informative & enjoyable.”
