The list comes as studies show stress now accounts for more than one-third of cases of ill health in companies.
The Forum of Private Business has published the list which urges employees to ask their employers for specific policies on stress.
The list states: “Encourage your firm to develop a company stress policy. An example of one is on the Health & Safety Executive website –www.hse.gov.uk”.
Employees are also encouraged to use support networks to share problems, not to procrastinate at work and set priorities and deal with problems accordingly.
