Total Back Office Solutions can give you recruitment agency formation advice
Employers are set to receive new guidelines detailing how to reduce stress levels among their employees, which may interest those looking to set up a recruitment agency.
The guide, published by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), alongside the Health and Safety Executive, Acas and the cross-government Health, Work and Wellbeing programme, aims to show employers how people management can be used to tackle stress.
Recent figures from the CIPD show that 49 per cent of employees have felt an increase in stress since the beginning of the recession.
"Employers that fail to manage stress effectively risk losing key staff through high absence levels and employee turnover," comments Bill Willmott, senior public policy adviser at the CIPD.
Last month, research by Medicash showed that men take more sick days due to stress than women; however, females suffer more physical sysptoms from workplace stress.
