International Labour Organisation illustrates workplace stress impacts

May 13, 2016

The International Labour Organisation (ILO) has released a detailed report which illustrates the impact of workplace stress on the mental health and the wellbeing of workers. ILO’s Workplace Stress: A collective challenge report found that psychosocial risks are related to “health-related behavioural risk, including heavy alcohol consumption, overweight, less frequent exercise, increased cigarette smoking, and sleep disorders”.

Furthermore it has been established that mental health disorders linked with psychosocial risk causes “increased absenteeism and presenteeism, disturbed labour relations, reduced motivation of staff, decreased satisfaction and creativity, increased staff turnover, internal transfers and retraining, and generally a poorer public image”.

It is evident that there is a direct correlation between the health and wellbeing of workers and the productivity achieved by businesses.

The National Retail Association (NRA) is pleased to offer two complimentary workshops in Brisbane to assist businesses in promoting mental health awareness and to meet the challenge of addressing depression, anxiety and related disorders in the workplace. These workshops are designed particularly for workplace settings, which aims to increase the knowledge and skills of staff, managers and business owners to address mental health problems in the workplace.
