An online survey conducted by Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers, MHA Moore and Smalley, found that 63 per cent of business owners and professionals across the region feel that their stress levels rise under these circumstances.
This can have a negative effect on an employee and their health and wellbeing. Employees may feel overworked during the summer holidays as their fellow employees are in and out of the office at different periods.
It is important that the management team within businesses educate and support themselves and their employees in these periods where stress levels are likely to rise.
