Staying Stress-Free and Happy in the Workplace

Posted: Friday, February 19, 2021

The Huntington County Chamber of Commerce will hold a Lunch ’n Learn on Wednesday, March 24. The event will be held at Faith Community Church of God, 3615 N. Norwood Road, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Lunch ’n Learn is titled: Staying Stress-Free and Happy in Today’s Workplace.

Our world is a very stressful place right now as we deal with COVID-19 and its restrictions and protocol, the political climate, children out of school doing e-learning and parents trying to find ways to balance work and home life. It has begun to take a toll on individuals, and beginning to cause a great deal of stress. Depression and suicide rates have increased along with anger and trying to cope with everyday life.

According to Mental Health America, “This stress impacts every part of our lives, including work. Research shows that stress directly impacts workplace productivity, employee engagement and costs businesses over $500 billion dollars per year.”

Work, stress, health and wellness are all interconnected. This event will provide an opportunity to learn how to manage stress and bounce back so that your employees and businesses can thrive, even during difficult times.

Some of the objectives you will learn include: Understanding the causes of employee stress and its impact on the workplace; recognizing and differentiating the signs and symptoms of stress, sadness and depression. The attendee will also gain practical skills in learning how to manage the impact of stress in the workplace.

This Staying Stress-Free and Happy Lunch ’n Learn will be presented by Mental Health America of Northeast Indiana. The flyer for the event can be found here.
