To limit work-related stress, the Health and Safety Executive says you must think about the demands on the individual and how much control the person has over their work. In organisations that manage stress effectively, employees are generally able to cope with the demands of their job and systems are in place to respond to any concerns.
However, a common problem is that managers and supervisors don’t delegate effectively. In the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development’s 2019 Health and Wellbeing at Work report, 43% said that management style was a direct cause of stress and 62% said heavy workloads were causing stress-related absences.
Effective delegation is therefore key to preventing stress.
During this workshop, managers will learn how to identify whether stress is a problem in their employees and how they can better delegate tasks to their teams.
Hosted by Jodie Hill, founder and Managing Partner of multi-award winning Thrive Law, this 60-minute workshop is intended to support line managers in the following:
- Introduction to the Health and Safety Executive’s 6 management standards on stress.
- How to identify if there is a problem with stress in their teams.
- Practical ways to tackle stress head on.
- Effective delegation tips to help prevent stress and burnout.
- Understanding your own management style and self-reflection.
