Workshops for effective stress management
for managers and employees 

Stress competence and resilience are health-promoting tools in the workplace, especially during crises.
The good news is: you can be trained in both!

Good reasons why you as employer should look after the wellbeing of your employees

  • Since 2010, sick days due to psychological illness has increased with 56 % (AOK | report of one of the largest medical insurance companies in Germany).


  • These cases of illness lead to extended incapacity: Affected employees stay out of work for an average of 30 days, which is double the average number of days for other illnesses, according to the report.


  • Burnout prophylaxis has been part of the German Occupational Health and Safety Act (§ 5) since 2013. This means: Companies must also identify those risks for their employees arising from mental stress at work.  (source: Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health).
