Six things an employer can do to address workplace stress. The Partnership for Workplace Mental Health's recent white paper on stress and resiliency was featured on the Disability Management Employer Coalition website. DMEC helped the Partnership recruit employer participants from an array of disciplines to participate in the study on which the paper is based, including human resources, disability management, and employee assistance. There were many positive examples and practical recommendations that surfaced among the group. Here is our list of the top recommendations for employers who would like to do a better job of managing stress.
