Firms in Derby Have Been Asked to Tackle Stress in the Workplace

GPs and Business leaders in Derbyshire want firms to make more of an effort to tackle stress at work with the incentive that every £1 spent will incur a £3 profit.

They made this statement after it was released that almost 10.5 million working days are lost in England and Wales annually as a result of stress at work which costs firms £1.2 billion every year.
