Improving Health and Wellbeing and Reducing Stress in the Workplace.

The latest estimate from the Health and Safety Executive shows that:

    • 10.8 million working days were lost in the last 12 months (2010/2011) *

All due to work related stress, defined as a harmful reaction people have to undue pressures and demands place on them at work.
The latest estimates from the Labour Force Survey show:

    • The total number of cases of stress in 2010/11 was 400,000 out of a total of 1,152,000 for all work-related illnesses.

The Health and Safety Executive is encouraging organisations to take proactive steps to reduce stress in the workplace.
Reducing stress has many potential benefits:

  • It improves morale and motivation which leads to lower staff turnover
  • Enhanced individual performance levels, leading to less absence due to sickness
  • Improved workplace relationships, leading to an increase in company performance levels

Holistic Harmony can provide cost effective solutions for the workplace.

We can organise wellbeing sessions for the specific needs of the organisation, running therapy days and using interactive forums and talks on health, relaxation and complementary therapies to show employees how to care for their own health.
Here are some ideas that you could consider introducing into your workplace:

  • Complementary Therapy Taster Sessions - We can organise taster sessions for your staff to help them experience a wide range of complementary therapies suitable for the workplace. These sessions will give staff the opportunity to reduce stress levels and continue to do so.
  • Interactive Workshops – We can organise therapists to visit your company or organisation to offer an interactive workshop to help them learn techniques and gain knowledge on how to improve their health and wellbeing.
  • Relaxation Sessions - We can organise regular or single sessions that allow opportunities to de-stress.

Contact Holistic Harmony to discuss how we can help your organisation and discuss any ideas you have.
