Some workplace stress is perfectly normal, it can help employees to stay motivated and focused ("healthy tension"). But when stress is excessive and it becomes more the norm rather than the exception - constant pressure, tight deadlines, constant work overload and/or difficult relationships with colleagues and managers, then stress can become harmful and problems ensue.
The main problem with stress at work is that it is contagious and when stressed managers pass their high tension on to their employees this can trigger a dangerous spiral for individuals but also for the organisation. More importantly, many companies think about employee wellbeing only in terms of healthy snacks or ping-pong tables. These are good initiatives but they are not enough. For an efficient wellbeing programme, companies need to create and strengthen a workplace culture that fosters psychological safety and prevents harmful stress.
Continuous stress is now the norm.
Understandably, pandemic stress is challenging our resilience more than ever before. This ‘extraordinary event’ forced us to make profound changes in the ways we live and work. Even if not all these changes are bad, because they are so profound, we need energy and mental availability to process them.
Living and working through a pandemic brought unprecedented challenges but also opportunities. Best companies quickly understood that they need to take their team care to the next level. Because we can’t innovate nor save the world while too stressed or unwell.
“Corporate chiefs and managers need to be mindful that employees’ mental state can be shaky in times of crisis—and take proper steps to help,” advises the consultancy firm Korn Ferry.
Organizations are facing an employee burnout crisis. A recent Gallup study of nearly 7,500 full-time employees found that 23% of employees reported feeling burned out at work very often or always, while an additional 44% reported feeling burned out sometimes. That means about two-thirds of full-time workers experience burnout on the job".
In short, employee burnout can trigger a downward spiral in individual and organizational performance, and put your organisation at risk losing your best elements.
The overall cost to British employers of stress, anxiety and depression(2002):
£1035 per employee per year (€1220)
- 32.4% is due to absenteeism
- 58.4% to ‘presenteeism’
- 9.2% to staff turnover
Work-related stress in 2016/17 accounted for an average of 23.9 work days lost for every person affected and 25.8 in 2017/2018
When it occurs, stress evaluation is highly subjective, based on self-reported symptoms.
The traditional approach to stress by doctors and psychologists alike does not rely on biological check-ups.
On the other side, most companies don't have effective systems in place to prevent and monitor harmful work stress, even if there is more and more openness and desire to do the right things for mental health and wellbeing at work for their employees. Only 22% of managers would be trained for stress management at work.
