Do you care about your employees? Do you wish you could do more for their mental health?
Well, now you can!
Hi! I'm John Freeman, and I help compassionate companies care for their people
My Mission Is Your Stress! To help you Understand it - Eliminate it - and Thrive without it! Simple!
What is stress costing your business?
From the CIPD:
"Stress continues to be one of the main causes of short and long-term absence. Overall, nearly four-fifths of respondents report some stress-related absence in their organisation over the last year.
Positively, more employers are recognising stress as an issue, and taking steps to tackle stress within their organisations. HOWEVER, just half of people professionals who report that their organisation is taking steps to address work related stress say its efforts are effective."
Read that again, only half of what organisations are doing is effective at helping their people!!!
It's time to call in The Stress Buster!
The problem isn't just in the workplace though, is it?
If you're a compassionate organisation, you care about your employees far beyond their work stress. For sure, your people have other stressors in their lives too: relationships, money, personal issues, loss of loved ones - all have a mounting affect on their stress levels. So many people suffer from it - so few truly understand it.
The Ultimate Stress Busting Workshop is a life-enhancing two and a half hour training that will leave your people better able to cope with anything life throws at them.
If you're ready to make a real impact with regards stress and help your people understand, eliminate, and thrive without it, here's the details of this unique training.
Stress ISN'T normal and it DOESN'T have to be part of your business or your life!
Stress Risk Assessments
Generally, your first step in getting ahead of workplace stress is to do a Stress Risk Assessment. The HSE expect you to go way beyond just ticking boxes here. To do it right, you need to follow the HSE's Management Standards (or an equivilant).
To save you time and a lot of trouble, you might benefit from my help:
- I'll talk to your appointed Stress Risk Assessment creator and ensure they have all the relevant materials from the HSE - AND understand what they are for & how to use them. (includes an example assessment
- I'll also make sure they understand all the important ways stress affects your workforce.
- And I'll be available on Whatsapp for all the guidance they need until the assessment is done.
Be prepared though, afterwards you'll need to create an action plan to deal with what shows up in the assessment.
Independent Stress Audits
The best way to discover how workplace stress is affecting your workforce. An Independant Stress Audit serves as a guidepost for undertsanding your stress issues.
They can be run before, after, or alongside the Stress Risk Assessment. Although flexible enough to suit your business size and model, they will usually include the following:
- I follow HSE guidelines and my audit will be entirely confidential in nature.
- A questionnaire surveying a representative sample of employees
- Structured interviews of some employees
- A full report giving recommendations

I have been more focused and motivated from day one. I would not have thought that being a warrior was what I was looking for but you have really resonated with some much needed feelings.
