Background

Work-related stress is defined as “a harmful reaction people have to undue pressures and demands place on them at work”.

The latest estimates from the Labour Force Survey (LFS) show:

  • The total number of cases of stress in 2011/12 was 428 000 (40%) out of a total of 1 073 000 for all work-related illnesses
  • The estimated cases of work-related stress, both total and new cases, have remained broadly flat over the past decade.
  • The industries that reported the highest rates of total cases of work-related stress (three-year average) were human health and social work, education and public administration and defence
  • The occupations that reported the highest rates of total cases of work-related stress (three-year average) were health professionals (in particular nurses), teaching and educational professionals, and caring personal services (in particular welfare and housing associate professionals)
  • The main work activities attributed by respondents as causing their work-related stress, or making it worse, was work pressure, lack of managerial support and work-related violence and bullying

Context:

Often our work with children and young people can be tough and demanding but we are also working in a climate of unprecedented change. As well as a duty to our clients and the people we work with we also have a duty of care towards ourselves. If we neglect this it can have a negative effect on the service we deliver.

How do we;

  • build our effectiveness and resilience?
