Lincolnshire businesses warned to look out for signs of stress in their workforce, warns HR Consultant

Businesses in Lincolnshire need to be more vigilant about signs of stress to maintain a healthier and more productive workforce, a local HR expert has warned.

Laura Reilly, owner of Taurus HR Solutions in Lincolnshire, says, “April marks Stress Awareness Month, which is a great time for business owners to proactively identify signs of stress amongst their employees.”

She says, “Burnout is a significant concern, impacting not only individual well-being but also overall business performance.”

Laura has created a handy guide to the top 5 signs of burnout:

– Increased absenteeism: Employees experiencing burnout may take more sick days, affecting overall productivity and team morale.

– Decline in performance: A noticeable drop in work quality, missed deadlines and decreased productivity can be indicators of burnout.

– Emotional exhaustion: Burnout often leads to emotional fatigue, causing employees to feel drained, irritable and disconnected.

– Physical symptoms: Chronic stress can manifest physically through headaches, fatigue and other health issues.

– Withdrawal from colleagues: Burnout may lead employees to disengage socially, avoiding interaction with colleagues and isolating themselves.

Laura is offering this expert advice for businesses this April.

– Promote open communication: Create an environment where employees feel comfortable expressing concerns about workload or stress.

– Implement well-being initiatives: Offer stress management workshops, counselling services or wellness programs to support employees.

– Encourage work-life balance: Foster a culture that values and promotes a healthy work-life balance, reducing the risk of burnout.

– Regular check-ins: conduct regular one-on-one check-ins with employees to discuss workload, challenges and well-being.

– Educate managers: Ensure managers are trained to recognise signs of stress and equipped to support their team members effectively.
