Employers under pressure to ease burden of staff

More
than 80 per cent of employers feel more under pressure then ever before,
despite management efforts to combat the problem.

The
survey of more than 800 managing directors shows that nine out of 10 are
actively looking at ways of reducing stress in the workplace.

A
similar proportion monitor workforces regularly to ensure stress levels don’t
increase.

Peter
Done, managing director of Peninsula, which carried out the research, said the
findings show employers recognise the dangers of stress at work.

He
said: "Although employers say they are stressed, they are making an effort
to ensure their workplaces are stress free.

"Large
compensation claims for workplace stress has brought home to employers that
they must prevent stress at work."
