Stress-related absence can appear to be a difficult issue for managers to deal with. There is still a stigma associated with mental health problems. Managers are often reluctant to communicate with absent employees because they fear they will be accused of bullying and harassment.
Research and experience tells us that if you can:
Enable increased perception of control;
Reduce uncertainty, and the associated anxiety and insecurity;
Provide support, especially in highly pressurised or stressful situations;
Tackle sources of pressure (stressors) in your work area…
..then you will minimise the risk of stress-related illness and increase wellbeing and performance at work.
