Workplace Wellbeing: Stress and Productivity at Work
Build workplace stress management skills and learn work productivity techniques
The UK government, businesses, and public health organisations have all backed the case for improving productivity through improved wellbeing in the workplace.
This course draws on contemporary research and consultancy experience to explore how stress impacts workplace productivity and performance.
Firstly, you’ll consider the impact of technological advances on our work schedules. You’ll discover how remote and flexible working patterns may result in an inability to switch off from work and how this can increase work-related stress and prevent the rest and recovery required to stay productive.
Next, you’ll consider individual and organisational differences that may impact the stress-productivity relationship, like differing personalities, thinking styles, and group dynamics, and learn practical workplace productivity techniques.
We will provide an overview of:
- The Stress Response
- The link between stress and productivity and performance in the Workplace
- How individual factors (e.g., personality, leadership) change the stress-productivity relationship.
- How the changing nature of the workplace (e.g., email, remote working) can impact the stress-productivity relationship.
- Strategies for maintaining performance and productivity in the workplace.
