5th April, 2023 Read time: Two minutes

Stress can affect anyone at any stage of their career, from business owners looking to recruit or retain staff to individuals looking for a career change or coming to the end of their career. 

During Stress Awareness Month, we’re sharing how you can #ActNow to feel calmer and more confident about growing your business, so you can sit back, relax, and feel that stress melt away.  

Here are three things you can do this month to reduce your stress: 

Take a break on us - you deserve it 

Ticking tasks off your to-do list may seem like an endless task and knowing where to start can be daunting. Luckily, we can do the hard work for you – free of charge!  

Our network of experienced business consultants help you identify your business needs and goals, facilitating growth, development and progression. We’ll help you to source local and national funding streams and access additional support such as specialist training, skills analysis and grant applications.  

You can rest easy knowing that your business is being looked after by a team who truly cares.

Happy staff, happy business 

Your workforce is the heart of your business, so taking care of them is a vital ingredient in allowing your business to thrive. Developing your employees can introduce a new level of productivity, engagement and retention to your business. 

If that sounds expensive, don’t worry. Our support is completely free, and we can help you access fully-funded or low-cost training courses to support your workforce development needs – so that’s one less thing to worry about! 

You won’t need to stress about the “how”, as we’re here to do that for you; from identifying skills gaps, upskilling employees with vocational courses or providing commercial training, our development experts can do it all.  

Taking the stress out of change 

Redundancy can be a worrying word, and it’s a difficult process for both individuals and businesses. Our redundancy support services are designed with your people at the heart, which means you can focus on your business strategy whilst we take care of the individuals leaving your business. 

 Whether it’s services to support with immediate restructures or closures, phased redundancy plans or access to Job Centre Rapid Response Form, we’re here to offer the highest quality support for your people so they can feel valued, respected and less stressed about change.   

This April, take the first steps to a stress-free business development plan and say hello to your Future!
