Course Details

In December 2015, The Industrial Safety and Health Act was amended to require businesses that employ more than 50 staff members to offer a Stress Check to their employees on an annual basis. The purpose of this amendment is to: 1) prevent work-related mental illness by helping employees to identify the impact of their stress; and 2) help employers to improve the work environment through collective analysis of Stress Check data. With this in mind, how can HR specialists or business leaders encourage their employees to participate in Stress Checks offered at the company when it is not mandatory for employees to do so? Furthermore, how can they support employees whose results indicate they are suffering with high levels of stress? In this workshop, the Stress Check system in Japan will be explained, and then advice on how to support employees suffering from stress at work will be discussed. The workshop contents include: Basic understanding of the Stress Check system; Developing an understanding of stressed employees; and Using Counseling Skills to support highly stressed employees. The workshop will include discussions and in-class exercises such as role-plays and case studies.
