Staff stress silently
Employees are unlikely to tell their manager if they are stressed, a new survey has revealed.

Ceridian has found that 58 per cent of staff will keep quiet about the anxiety they suffer through their colleague's annoying habits.

Managing director of Ceridian in the UK Doug Sawers comments that worried workers can waste businesses money through a loss of productivity.

"The CBI [Confederation of British Industry] estimates the cost to British business of lost productivity through mental illness and stress to be £5 billion," he remarks.

Bosses should be aware of stress triggers in the office, he adds.

Results show that avoiding work, gossiping and private conversations hassle staff in the workplace.

Stress management programmes can help staff cope with this condition, Ceridian states, as results of a previous survey have shown.

Last month, the Health and Safety Commission stated that it had some concerns about the cost of stress-related illnesses for businesses.
