Man and woman talking at work

Your employees' emotional well being and relationship skills play a crucial role in how well they're able to do their jobs.

If they're distracted by issues at home or in the workplace or find it hard to resolve workplace conflict effectively it's unlikely they'll be able to contribute to your business to their full potential.

This has big consequences for your bottom line. It's estimated that stress related problems cost UK employers 26 billion pounds per annum - over 1,000 pounds for each employee per year. If you think emotional or psychological issues could be affecting your workers' performance, we can help.
