Uncertainty breeds anxiety and during these turbulent times, businesses must remain agile and flexible to change. If you are a business owner in this industry, you are often required to carry a diverse range of responsibilities to maintain business viability. In our industry, the compounded stress is often leading to mental health issues contributing to a reduction in productivity and inability to visualise strategies for sustainability and implement a plan for future growth.
Our research has confirmed that almost 42% of businesses we surveyed stated that because of the challenges in coping with their stress, business owners preferred to decrease staff numbers and downsize their business.
On the other hand, while others were managing well, they were concerned with the inconsistent standards of staff performance as mental and emotional pressures were impacting their capacity to meet their daily targets and responsibilities to the level of excellence that is expected of them.
After extensive research and collaboration with experts, APAN is delighted to launch the MENTAL HYGIENE AND BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM.
