According to Aon’s most recent report, long working hours, increased workload and the pressure to perform all elevate the risk of work-related stress and are threatening to undermine the resilience of both individuals and organisations.

For example, Aon found that only 28% of financial services organisations feel positive about the ability of managers to address mental health needs¹.

Aon’s paper, Long hours and burnout explores how putting employee resilience at the centre of your wellbeing strategy reduces the risks associated with stress, anxiety and burnout.

This includes a focus on:

• the convergence of people and risk management
• the crucial role of managers
• the importance of reviewing existing strategies in light of future working trends
