How do we prevent stress?

The question isn’t whether or not stress is a part of organizational life, but rather: how do we talk about it, and how can we prevent it? 

Stress is a natural part of life, especially in times of change. However, it’s undoubtedly a negative influence when discussing employee wellbeing and performance.

For years, we have been talking about resilience and robustness, and during that same time a steadily growing number of the workforce has been on stress-related sick leave.

At this symposium, we will look at stress from different perspectives and ask: what can leaders and organisations do to minimise stress? And how can individuals work with their thought processes to prevent stress?

We are inviting leaders and HR professionals to join this conversation led by stress experts and researchers. Together we will discuss the facts and assumption about stress and consider the tools and models that help organisations build sustainable work environments. 

Tentative agenda:

  • The societal trends and developments of stress by Jesper Kristiansen, Senior Researcher from The National Research Center for the Working Environment
  • Case presentation – the role of the organization in employee wellbeing by Global Learning Partner at Unity, Cary Bailey-Findly
  • The metacognitive approach to individual stress prevention by stress expert and coach,  Katrine Sejersen-Permin
  • A taste of the MINDstrain Game (Danish version) as part of stress prevention

The symposium takes place on October 30, 2019 and runs from from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. Participation is free of charge but seats are limited.
