Cable & Wireless Worldwide said that the issues of stress should be a “key consideration” when allocating resources for the wellbeing of staff.
Debbie Meech, people director at Cable&Wireless Worldwide, pointed out that the economic downturn has been hard on employees and has caused many to worry about their future and their jobs.
She explained that no organisation can claim to be stress free and therefore employers must think about measures they can take to reduce the pressures on their workforce.
“Employers need to closely monitor any signs of plummeting wellbeing, such as an increased absence level or increases in certain types of illness, serious incidents and injuries, an increased usage of an assistance line and occupational health or changes in engagement scores,” Ms Meech stated.
She suggested that businesses may be able to offer employees on-site nurses for a day, childcare or private medical insurance, to reduce some worries.
