Case studies – managing work-related stress
These case studies show how organisations can make positive changes in how they manage work-related stress. They demonstrate how managing risk can help staff and reduce sickness absence.
NHS Trust Hospital
An NHS Trust had an established employee well-being programme, which identified a potential issue with work-related stress. They decided to take a more proactive, preventative approach to managing stress-related ill health.
A council reduced its stress-related sickness absence by about a third (over 13 000 days) in the first year of a new approach to work-related stress.
A science company used the Management Standards Indicator Tool to identify causes of stress in the organisation, so they could put preventative measures in place.
