In Fact, it is one of the easiest cost reductions you can make.

But dealing with stress doesn’t just reduce costs, it makes for a happier, more cohesive and more efficient workforce: a more positive working environment, more teamwork, more motivation…more results.

Your company could be like this:

Healthy, vibrant employees with real work/life balance. Real teamwork and co-operation. Fast and effective meetings. Proper lunch breaks. More enjoyment and fun. People totally committed to their work and the future of the company. Accurate, productive work. Excellent employee relations, and leadership. Excellent customer and community relations.

So what is your monthly nominal vs. actual wage bill? What could your company be saving by tackling stress?

The current economic climate dictates that stress is everywhere, especially at work. This leads to defensive and sometimes aggressive behaviour at work, because with this mindset everyone is out for themselves; any sense of teamwork can go out of the window. In addition, stress drastically reduces productivity levels and whilst people may be working longer hours to show their commitment or to get the work done, they are dramatically less efficient.

Do you notice any of the following in your company?

  • Increases in absenteeism.   People working longer hours.   Increases in arguments and confrontation.
  • Meetings taking longer because agreement is more difficult.   Lunch breaks at desk.
  • Less laughter and fun.   People going through the motions rather than enjoying their work
  • More mistakes being made.   Poorer customer service.

Winning Minds’s Liberate your Life in 1 Day workshops guarantee to show people how to totally transform their lives. What is more, they are covered by easily accessible government funding through the Train To Gain Initiative**, which means the costs can be reduced by 50%, 66.6% or 100% depending on which of the following options is chosen:
