According to a survey of 200 HR directors across the UK by recruitment agency OfficeTeam, over one in four (28%) respondents admitted to not having a formal process in place to deal with employee stress and anxiety.

The study segmented the results by size, sector and geographic location, with multiple responses permitted.

When asked what policies HR Directors have implemented to help employees deal with stress and anxiety, the findings discovered that 33% had set up stress management training for all employees, 32% gave them access to counselling services through private medical insurance, 31% had arranged individual programmes as needed, while 7% only had formal policies in place for senior management.

In terms of industry demographics, one in three (33%) HR directors admitted they had not implemented stress and anxiety policies for private sector employees, compared to 28% for publicly listed companies and 20% for the public sector.

The research further found that on average, more than one in 10 employees fail to take their full annual leave allowance according to HR Directors, which is not advisable when keeping stress and anxiety under control.
