The WellBeing and Performance Agenda

The WellBeing and Performance Agenda

The WellBeing and Performance Agenda

Amongst the biggest challenges that any organisation faces is how to minimise the impact of stress on its performance. Currently, psychological presenteeism (employees and managers who come to work but who under perform due to lack of concentration caused by stress inducing problems) costs between 1.5 and 3 times the costs attributable to sickness absence and staff turnover.

By tackling the causes of psychological presenteeism the business or service also tackles sickness absence, and staff turnover attributable to stress. The added benefit of tackling presenteeism is a workforce that is highly engaged, innovative and contributes more than is expected.
