A special workshop to help reduce stress in the workplace is being staged in Shrewsbury in the new year.
The free Wellbeing in the Workplace event at the University Centre Shrewsbury on January 15, will explore ways to help companies and their staff live and work better.
Wellbeing trainer June Meagher will lead the event, which is being staged by the Marches Growth Hub Shropshire.
Growth hub manager Emma Chapman said the event was aimed at SMEs, sole traders, managers and team leaders.
"By learning to understand the importance of wellbeing in the workplace and recognise the symptoms of stress and how this impacts your business, you will be able to put a strategy in place that will help create an effective and efficient workplace as well as save you money," Emma said.
June, who has been teaching wellbeing, stress management and mindfulness for more than 20 years, said topics covered by the event would include:
What is wellbeing in the workplace?
How stress can harm a business
How to recognise stress
Creating a wellbeing strategy
"In 2018 nearly 600,000 workers suffered from work-related stress or anxiety which accounted for 15.4million days lost. It is in everyone’s interest to cut this figure and this workshop will help many companies start that process."
The event starts at 9.15am. To book a place click here
