The pressures of the modern business world can be intense. Stress, burn-out and fatigue among executives and workers are all too common. If you recognise the symptoms in yourself, it can often be useful to establish a relationship with a mentor – someone who can advise and counsel you towards a more balanced and productive working life.
Not only can the consequences for individual employees be severe in terms of depression and addiction, but they are also a significant issue for employers. After a company has invested time and money in someone’s career, it’s in their own interests to see them prosper. Nowadays, a lengthy stay at a top clinic for one of your executives simply may not be feasible from a practical or financial point of view.
Prevention rather than cure
Proactive intervention works for your member of staff and it works for you too, as you avoid the lost productivity which comes from absence and under-performance. According to the UK’s Health & Safety Executive, over 11 million days were lost to stress, anxiety and depression in 2013-2014.
