Since 2014, I have been speaking about Stress in the work place. The impact that modern day working practices has on an individual is huge. Managers and Organisations are over looking the employee against the pressure of getting the job done.
In any organisation, regardless of the Emergency Services employment the most expensive and valuable resource is the employee. A happy employee means increased productivity and higher standards of professionalism and output.
A good Work/Life balance is essential, yet it is overlooked.
I speak on the pressures of work and how things can go horribly wrong. Emergency workers are the worst when it comes to their safety, often they are the ones running towards the dangers when others are running away. The expectations and demands of the work means that they often disregard their welfare and mental health “to get the job done”.
