Did you know, in the UK we have the longest working hours in Europe, yet we have one of the lowest levels of productivity?
Sounds alarming doesn’t it? Particularly in today’s climate where everyone is expected to do more with less! No wonder there is an increase in stress in the workplace and in turn friction between colleagues, ill health, ineffectiveness and absenteeism. What’s more, this is a real problem for both individuals and for organisations.
During Wakefield Business Week (on Thursday 21st March) Jigsaw@work will be delivering a free seminar to deal with stress in the workplace. ‘Managing Stress in Today’s Climate’ is for anyone who feels that the pressure of work is impacting upon their work performance and life. During this seminar, we’ll be teaching strategies and techniques to help develop personal resilience to workplace stress.
We’ll be covering:
- The science behind the stress
- Personal coping strategies
- Mindful working practices
- How to achieve a state of ‘flow’ for maximum productivity
As well as leaving with a toolkit of ideas which can be used immediately to help to reduce and control your stress levels, we’re also offering a free 30 minute telephone coaching session for all attendees.
In addition to our stress management seminar, we will also be delivering a free workshop aimed at business owners, managers, supervisors and team leaders who are interested in how to raise employee engagement levels, without raising a fortune. Having an engaged workforce is vital to the long term success of an organisation and creates positive outcomes for both the individual and organisation.
We always enjoy giving seminars and are excited to be taking part in Wakefield Business Week (18th – 22nd March). The week is packed full of activities that bring together the Wakefield district business community and there’ll be a major business conference and trade exhibition, as well as different seminars.
If you would like to book a place on either of these free seminars, please visit http://www.wakefieldbusinessweek.co.uk/events or call a member of the team on 01924 864444 to find out more about how we can help your organisation.
