IRIS HR Stress Report 2018

A Stressed Nation - but is stigma changing?

Whilst there is no specific law aimed at workplace stress, UK employers do have duties under the Health and Safety at Work Act to ensure the health, safety and welfare of their employees. Employers owe their employees a common law duty to take reasonable care to safeguard their health and safety, and this includes a duty to control stress levels at work.

Work-related stress occurs when a worker reacts in an adverse way to excessive pressures or demands in the workplace. Stress can have a corrosive impact on work reducing productivity and increasing absences.

Our latest stress report is essential reading for anyone in HR or for employers who care about employee wellbeing and engagement. The report is the result of an in-depth survey of UK workers focusing on the prevalence of stress and its causes.

540 participants across different sectors, roles and demographics took part in our survey, and gave us significant findings. Virtually no question reaped an ‘indifferent’ response, highlighting the emotive nature and widespread scale of this extremely topical subject.

The report covers:

  • Stress & Mental Health
  • The Prevalence of Stress
  • Understanding the Causes of Stress
  • How to Manage Stress
  • Employers' Responsibilities
  • Developing a Stress Management Plan
