“A stress-free and safe working environment is the right of every employee, but the workplace can sometimes be very stressful. In this environment, the human body reacts to stress as a threat, which triggers defense mechanisms: an increased heart rate, tense muscles, elevated stress hormones and raised blood pressure. It is vital for every company to take care of its employees. Stress in the workplace can damage employees’ mental and physical well-being, so it is important for companies to address it. Training can help create a better and more productive office environment.”
