Springville, UT (Vocus/PRWEB) February 16, 2011
MyExpertSolution announced today the availability of a new online workshop, Strategies for Stress Relief, designed to help people to lower stress and increase performance at work and in their personal lives. This essential training is part of the company’s Digital Life Skills Coach, a creative new solution designed to help employees enjoy improved health and productivity.
It’s common sense that stressed-out employees miss more work and perform poorly even when they do show up at the workplace. The U.S. National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health reports that stress is the primary cause of long-term absences, and a significant factor in short-term absences. According to another study, stress is the number one reason people leave their jobs. Additionally, almost half of all U.S. employers say stress is affecting business performance.
Not all stress is bad, however. Healthy doses of stress can motivate people to action, and increase productivity. The trick to managing your stress is finding a healthy balance that keeps people motivated without overwhelming them.
This new workshop from MyExpertSolution helps members assess the sources of stress in their lives and offers strategies for maintaining healthy levels of the right kind. Along with an overview of the nature of stress, the first half of the workshop offers self-assessments so people can see how they’re doing. Members learn what causes stress, how they’re affected by it, and whether or not their current coping strategies are working.
The second half of the workshop looks at stress from a variety of sources and shows employees how to lower stress in each area. Brett Williams, M.F.T. and Executive Director of Behavioral Health at MyExpertSolution, says, “People can discover dozens of ways to lower their stress and choose the techniques that work best for them.”
Employees can proceed through the self-paced workshop, spending 20-30 minutes in each section. Because it’s offered through a digital medium, it’s available at any time, and from any location where internet access is available. Allen Tietjen, CEO of MyExpertSolution, says, “Given how widespread chronic stress is, and how damaging it is to health and productivity, this workshop should be required training in every workplace.”
