Today (7 November) is National Stress Awareness Day, an annual event which aims to raise awareness of the issue of stress.
In 2011/12 there were 428,000 cases of work-related stress, accounting for 40% of all work-related illnesses.
The Retail Trust Helpline is here to help all retail stuff cope with any issue they may be facing, including stress both inside and out of the workplace. The free, independent and confidential Helpline can provide access to up to six free, face-to-face or telephone counselling sessions.
