How to talk about stress



If you do notice one of your employees or colleagues is stressed, what do you do? Managers have the responsibility to support their team so you need to talk to that person. Some top tips:


Be open and proactive about discussing stress. You do not necessarily have to find signals of stress to talk about it. For example, you can also organise opportunities in team or one-to-one meetings to talk about stress and make it open for discussion. Let all your colleagues talk about their own experiences with work stress and then start looking for ways to reduce the stress in the workplace.


Together you stand stronger, especially when you as a team know what is happening to everyone. Team meetings are also a good time to get staff to share tips that help them prevent or manage their stress.
