The number of stress-related absences in financial services is higher now than in the immediate aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, employment law specialist Fox & Partners has found in an analysis of Health and Safety Executive figures. Many within the industry don’t believe that businesses are doing enough to support their employees, banking and financial service industries employees in particularly are prone to sedentary behaviour, poor nutrition and sleep deprivation, impacting on their overall health and productivity. We hope our mindfulness zone will go some way in bridging that gap; providing you with a workshop sharing useful tips on how to reduce and take control of your day-to-day stresses, learning how to switch off, and mindfulness techniques to handle stressful situation within the workplace.
