The pressure is on in today’s workplace, and the working environment can be intense and stressful – worries over job security; budget cuts; redundancies; increased workloads; competing with colleagues for the same job in a shrinking workforce and watching colleagues leave while surviving the latest redundancy programme.

Managers feel pressurised to produce results, meet targets and deliver quality services.  Motivating staff, responsible management and developing a healthy workplace can easily fall off the action plan. However, investing time to create a working environment where concerns can be raised as early as possible is vital to a healthy working environment, crucial in today’s economic climate and totally achievable in any organisation.
