How is stress hurting your business?

High Turnover

Whether you realise it or not, stress will have a profound impact on your employee turnover as it significantly affects the well-being, job satisfaction and overall performance of all individual members in your team. Your business may see multiple people leave simultaneously or within a short time of one another if the stress levels are consistently high.

Low Engagement

Your employees can experience chronic stress due to excessive workload, unrealistic expectations, circumstances beyond their control, support needs, relationships and change affecting their work. These employees may also begin to withdraw from social interactions leading to isolation and disconnect from their colleagues and your company.

High Absenteeism

The negative impact of stress on mental and physical well-being can manifest in higher absenteeism in your business. As a result of this stress, your employees may become unwell and need time off to cope with the overwhelming pressure and emotional strain. This not only disrupts workflow and productivity but also places a burden on the rest of your team.

Poor Communication

Stress in the workplace often hampers effective communication and collaboration among your employees, leading to strained relationships, misunderstandings and a toxic working environment. This can also exacerbate emotional reactions, causing individuals to respond defensively or aggressively in challenging situations, ultimately causing issues within your business.

Burnout

When individuals are continuously faced with overwhelming work demands, long working hours and high-pressure situations, they can reach a state of emotional, mental and physical exhaustion, also known as burnout. This is devastating to the person and extremely damaging to businesses.

What Our Clients Say

  • Johnson Matthey

    “Amanda from Caldeira consulting ran a really powerful workshop for the JM Cambridge site as part of our focus during Mental Health Awareness Week. The session was really informative and interactive and most importantly really helped all those who attended start to consider countering stress in the workplace in a more collective and proactive manner. The root cause analysis techniques were very familiar as a science-based manufacturing organisation but the idea of applying these techniques to a collective review of workplace stressors rather than just treating the cause or even worse the symptoms of an individual.
    Amanda spoke with knowledge and experience on the subject and really engaged the audience throughout the session.” – Johnson Matthey

  • The Good Marketer

    “It’s quite likely that companies are aware of when their workforce is experiencing stress, but it might be less likely that they know and fully understand the causes of that stress.
    The most impactful part of our work with Amanda was the depth to which we looked at the root causes of our stressors—not just the stress itself. Doing so enabled us to adopt a proactive approach, and implementing preventative processes allowed us to alleviate the overall stress levels within our team. It
    wasn’t just suggesting that our employees take some deep breaths or get up and away from their laptops
    when things feel overwhelming; it was understanding where that overwhelm stems from and figuring out
    ways we could stop it in its tracks.
    Amanda’s kind and attentive nature was the perfect guidance to inspire an open and honest conversation
    about what changes we could make within our company to better support our employees.” – The Good
    Marketer

  • The Good Marketer

    “My name is Lucia De Angelo, and whilst working at The Good Marketer, I had the opportunity to take part in the Wellbeing At Work programme by Caldeira Consulting.
    Agency work is renowned for its fast-paced and often stressful nature. Our senior management recognised the need for practical measures to alleviate the strain on our team, particularly as we approached the demanding Q4 period. Consequently, they enrolled us in sessions led by Amanda.
    As we approached the programme, we were soon approaching Q4. For those of us in marketing, the months of October, November, and December are especially demanding due to events like Black Friday and the winter holidays. This typically means an influx of new clients, last-minute projects, and many competing priorities.
    Because these events are inevitable, we always felt like stress was inevitable, too, so we hired Amanda in the hopes she could help us find ways to manage it, but she did much more. Through her guidance, we came to realise that whilst we couldn’t change the number of clients, we could better organise our time.
    Adopting a proactive approach and implementing preventative processes allowed us to alleviate the overall stress levels within our team.
    Reflecting on the past Q4, the difference is clear. Thanks to the insights provided by Caldeira Consulting, we not only reduced our stress levels but also saw tangible improvements in our internal processes.
    I am immensely grateful to Amanda for her invaluable contributions. Her dedication to our well-being has made a profound difference, and her expertise has left real improvements in the team.”

Finding The Root Cause

Instead of continuing in the reactive cycle that so many businesses are in and only dealing with problems once they've gotten out of hand, the best way of managing any issue, including stress at work, is to find the root causes.

Identifying the situations and circumstances that cause stress in your workplace is essential for creating a healthy and productive team. These underlying factors require a comprehensive approach that includes open communication, analysis and strategising a future plan. This starts with honest conversations with your workforce to gain insight into concerns and challenges.

As part of our approach, we will help you initiate these conversations to help uncover common stressors and patterns across your business. Additionally, we will analyse work processes, job roles and policies to help to pinpoint the triggers so we can understand how your individual business can best deal with stress in your workplace. Using a risk assessment method specifically designed by Caldeira and considering factors such as workload, unrealistic expectations, lack of resources, and leadership are crucial.

By understanding the root causes of stress in your organisation, we can work together to implement targeted strategies to alleviate stress, enhance employee well-being and foster a more positive and productive work culture.

    The cost of a stressed workforce can vary depending on various factors, including the size of your business, the industry you are in, the levels of stress experienced and how it manifests in the workplace. To identify the financial impact this could be having on your business, you will need to conduct a comprehensive analysis of several key areas, including reduced productivity, turnover costs, absenteeism, employee engagement, and legal and HR costs. Keep in mind that while some of these may be more easily quantified, some will be challenging to measure precisely. It is also important to consider the long-term effects of a stressed workforce on the business’s overall culture, reputation and customer satisfaction. Engaging in our stress management strategies, fostering a supportive work environment and investing in employee well-being can ultimately lead to substantial cost savings by reducing stress-related issues and improving overall productivity and employee retention.

    Workplace stress management is a comprehensive risk assessment approach aimed at identifying, addressing and mitigating stressors within your organisation to promote the well-being of your employees and enhance overall business performance. This is essential for your company because higher stress levels can lead to various detrimental effects on your employees and daily operations. It can result in decreased productivity, increased absenteeism, diminished job satisfaction and higher employee turnover. By prioritising workplace stress management and working alongside our consultancy, your company can cultivate a healthier and more motivated workforce, improving retention and bettering business outcomes.
