Line managers should be aware of the causes of stress and the symptoms that people exhibit if they experience stress. They should be alert to signs of stress among their team and, if employees experience stress, help them to deal with it. Line managers can also take steps to help prevent stress from occurring within their team. This line manager briefing provides guidance for line managers on how to prevent stress and help employees cope with stress.
This line manager briefing is accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation for training purposes, which should be used in conjunction with the briefing. The briefing and PowerPoint presentation can be adapted for use, subject to the XpertHR terms and conditions of use.
