Health and Well-being

When retail supervisor Madeleine got a telephone call at work that all working parents dread…she could never have imagined what was to follow.

It’s fair to say that there can be some uncertainty for employers when it comes to considering reasonable adjustments for an employee suffering with depression.

Pay attention to every survey with a health warning and you will be afraid to do many things – and you can now add going to work and sitting at a desk to that list.

The number of workers suffering from work-related stress remains a growing concern for employers. It is thought many factors such as job cuts, financial worries, poor management and bullying are to blame.

It’s not uncommon to hear an employee complain of feeling ‘stressed out’ at work.

It can be a throwaway, flippant comment at times uttered without a second thought about the real impact of stress.

It is that time of year when employers need to be fully prepared for the flu season which can be bad for business.

Some lucky employees will jet off to sunnier climes this Christmas for a family get together.

Were here to help when you need it.
