Workplace issues for employers.

Workplace  performance and stress related matters

There can be any number of reasons why staff aren’t performing as well as you as they could and so taking charge of the situation and doing what you can to remedy the matter will reap dividends. Very often simply the fact that their employer considers them important enough to be offered help is empowering and a benefit in itself.

I can work with groups of your staff or with your employees individually depending on what you think the best way to help.

  • Getting the best out of staff performance

Every manager will be able to point to people in their teams who they know are capable of more than they currently give but they just can’t seem to get them there. Something is still holding them back. It could be fear, lack of confidence, a dislike of another member of the team or any number of issues but something is stopping them from performing to their highest level. You may have sent them on various training courses, but nothing has worked.

Changing their mind set is the answer. I can very quickly prepare them for a specific presentation or a general change in their attitude by removing the unwanted behaviours or fears and replacing them with positive coping systems.

If there is a specific issue or behaviour that needs changing, I can resolve quickly not only saving the employee stress and embarrassment but turn them into happier and more engaged employees.

It really is a win win situation.

  • Workplace stress.

The workplace and businesses can be a huge source of pressure and anxiety. Usually this is within manageable limits but for 1 in 7 of us in the UK this pressure will become unbearable at some stage in our working lives.

It can happen at any level and at any time but rarely do we seek help, instead we stumble on fearful that we might be accused of faking it or of not being taken seriously. This can build on the stress and anxiety, and in turn, contribute to the overall problem. Many people will continue working until they have a breakdown and find they are unable to function as even the most routine decisions have become a challenge. It is often only at this stage, when productivity is compromised, that the situation comes to the attention of the organisation.

As stress is one of the major reasons people take time off work and, by investing in a stress reduction scheme such as hypnotherapy, companies can increase productivity, happiness and subsequently loyalty in their employees .It can be a very wise initial investment saving on sick leave payments, temporary or agency staff fees or, in the worst case scenario, the costs associated with capability or termination of employment.

I can help by stepping in as quickly as possible and hopefully prevent a serious issue from arising because left untreated chronic workplace stress can lead to a wide range of negative health outcomes, from physical health issues to signs of anxiety, depression and low mood.
