Acas – Managing stress in the workplace

Advisory booklet – Stress at work | Acas

Stress is much in the news at present but it isn’t a new problem. Pressure is part and parcel of all work and helps to keep us motivated. But excessive pressure can lead to stress which undermines performance, is costly to employers and can make people ill.HSE estimates that 13.5 million working days were lost to stress, depression and anxiety in 2007/08.

Each new case of stress leads to an average of 31 days off work. Work-related stress costs society about £3.7 billion every year (at 1995/96 prices).

This booklet investigates stress in the workplace and offers employers helpful advice.

The booklet is available to download below. Alternatively, hard copies are available to order from our Publications site.
