Reducing Work-related Stress
Lost days due to ill health, bad backs and stress is a huge cost to business. Add to this the expense to businesses of training people who simply leave due to frustration, depression or lack of motivation and you have a significant sum. In China, Japan and other Far Eastern countries it’s considered obvious that a healthy and happy workforce is good for business. A view that’s becoming increasingly shared in the UK.
How TMW can make a difference
One way to show you value your people is to support them. TMW is a simple yet effective way of helping your workforce proactively reduce stress while achieving a healthy body and mind.
One client’s story
A CEO of a design company encouraged his workforce to down tools and use TMW to give their minds and bodies a concentration break. There were some grumbles that it was taking valuable time away from their work day. However their productivity increased. Why? Because they returned to work refreshed.

The long-term benefits
TMW can be tailored to address particular issues – such as high absenteeism or lack of motivation due to ill health or stress. A TMW trainer will deliver sessions and provide a comprehensive back-up programme to help manage the issue(s) over the long term. We can also provide a TMW programme to reduce the potential for ill health in a proactive way – preventing it from becoming a problem in the first place. We can also train members of the workforce to train as TMW trainers too, so you can provide on-site programmes to continually contribute to the efficiency of the business.
