How to deal with anxious workforce?

Anxiety and stress are the silent killers for productivity. According to WHO it’s affecting 300 million people globally. In the US, 1 in 5 people suffers from it. Last year, in the UK alone, 12.8 million working days were lost due to work-related anxiety, stress and depression.

But how many of the people never reported it or asked for help?

Having anxiety is still unfortunately a stigma at work. It’s something we rarely talk about and often suffer silently even in the top management.

We don’t want to be labelled. We don’t want to be a topic of discussion near the coffee machines.

We definitely don’t want pity.

With the constant restructuring, change and pressure, anxiety and stress are becoming a huge, silent problem for the leadership team as well as employees.

We need to do something about it.
