Workplace anger 'must be tackled by bosses'
Employers should not overlook anger problems in the workplace, a new report has stated.

If anger in the workplace is left untreated then it can lead to more serious problems, the Mental Health Foundation has discovered.

According to the foundation's Boiling Point report, employees that suffer from anger problems may be more likely to catch a cold or the flu.

Depression, heart disease, strokes and cancer may also result from untreated anger, the poll of doctors and psychologists found.

Dr Andrew McCulloch, chief executive of the Mental Health Foundation, commented that employees must be able to feel like they can ask their employer for help if they have anger issues.

"Tackling it won’t be simple or straightforward, but the benefits could be enormous," he remarked.

Dame Carol Black, the national director for health and work, has suggested that a system of well notes be brought in to replace sick notes.
