Start time: 13:00
On Thursday 18th November at 13:00-14:45, Cheltenham Chamber will be holding its next in-person event of the year at the Isbourne Centre, Cheltenham, focusing on stress and how we can avoid its damaging effects.
It will be a mini-workshop to help us understand stress at work more fully, together with some useful techniques to help us manage it better in future and, of course, there will be the usual chance to network.
A delicious vegan buffet lunch will be provided by Poco Culina, (to include Spinach and Almond ‘feta’ Spanokopita, Greek Table Salad and Tomato and Courgette Keftedes) which is included in the price of just £12.00pp for Chamber members and £15.00pp for non-members.
By the end of this session we should all feel a lot better and to extend this, a discount voucher will be given to all attendees offering 25% off any Workplace Wellbeing days booked before the end of this year and arranged for early next year.

Why this matters?
Work patterns were changing before Covid and many of these have been accelerated by the pandemic and there is little doubt that returning has added to stress at work.
And we are still quite a long way from knowing what the ‘new normal’ really looks like. Whether, it’s adapting to new circumstances, continued health related anxiety or significant shifts in work/home balance, the impact on wellbeing at work should not be underestimated.
In 2019/20 17.9 million working days were lost to work-related stress, anxiety or depression, which is 51% of all work-related absences. Around 828,000 individuals are suffering from the effects of work-related stress. These numbers have been steadily increasing since 2014 with a dramatic increase since the start of the pandemic, however, there is something that we can do about it!
HR Star and Isbourne
Kelly Tucker from HR Star will be sharing some facts and statistics behind workplace stress and ways in which employers can support their employees through this new transition time back into the workplace or moving to permanent home working.
Kathryn Buxton, Educational Manager and Isbourne Tutor of Mindfulness and Meditation will demonstrate some ways we can all help to reduce stress levels and feel calmer throughout the day.
Whether you are affected personally or concerned about the impact on your people, you’ll find it a very useful (and hopefully stress reducing) session.
