6 stress busting tips - how to manage stress in the workplace  image
6 stress busting tips - how to manage stress in the workplace

​Feeling some tension and stress at work is normal, particularly when you have a looming deadline, tricky project or are juggling many priorities. But it is important to understand when work stress becomes burnout and damaging to both your physical and emotional well-being. ​Being mindful of work stress can have positive impacts on both your personal and work life. Whether your job is s permanent office-based position or a temporary one involving manual work. Anyone can experience stress. That’s why we have put together some steps to help you begin to take control of your stress at work:  1.   Take time to recharge  It is important to take time away from work and really use your free time for yourself. Taking a few minutes during your lunch break at work to listen to a podcast or watch something you like can help with feelings of stress and helps to create boundaries between what is work time and what is personal time.  It’s also important to take breaks from thinking about your job by not checking work-related emails whilst you’re off. You can also choose to disconnect from your phone in the evenings to help you really switch off and relax.   2.   Move your body   Being physically active means sitting down less and moving our bodies more. Even if you are in work in a role that is physically active, it is still important to be moving your body outside of work time.   Exercise has many benefits that will reduce some of the emotional intensity that you're feeling which will help you to manage your problems more calmly, including: better sleep – exercise uses energy so by the end of the day you feel more tired and ready for a good night's sleep  happier moods – physical activity releases feel-good hormones that make you feel better in yourself and give you more energy managing stress, anxiety, and racing thoughts – doing something physical releases cortisol which is your body’s main stress hormone. This is a positive coping strategy as it gives your brain something else to focus on which overall helps manage stress.  Cortisol plays an important role in a number of things in your body, one of which is the ability to boost your energy to help you handle stress before regulating and restoring balance afterwards.  Did you know that all Thrive employees have access to over 3,500 gym discounts across the country? 3.   Understand what is expected of you in your role A common reason many people begin to feel stressed at work is when they are unclear about what is expected from them as an employee. If you don’t know exactly what is expected of you, or the expectations in your role keep changing with minor notice, you could begin to feel more stressed.  If you feel unclear about your requirements, you may benefit from arranging a talk with your manager or supervisor to discuss expectations which in turn can relieve stress for both parties!  4.   Consider how you are using your time at workIf you feel particularly overwhelmed and stressed at work, it is important to ensure you remain organised and manage your time well to help reduce stress:Set realistic goals. Work with colleagues and leaders to set expectations you can meet. Set regular progress reviews and adjust your goals when needed.Make a priority list. Prepare a list of tasks and rank them in order of priority. You can use your list throughout the day and work on tasks in priority order. It is also important to say no if you don't have time to do a task, rather than putting too much on your agenda for one day. Protect your time. For a particularly important or difficult project, make sure to block out time to work on it without interruption. That said, it is also important to break large projects into smaller steps to avoid becoming overwhelmed.  5.   Make use of employee benefits   Make yourself aware of the employee benefits at your workplace. All Thrive employees have access to a virtual 24/7 GP, free health assessments, and free counselling through the Thrive Benefits App. Read more about Thrive employee benefits 6.   Use free resources to talk to someone and seek advice There are several brilliant organisations and charities that can help with combatting workplace stress.   Mind – offers training for employers and toolkits to help them assist employees who require support.  Anxiety UK – offers a phone line to support those with questions on how to prevent anxiety and stress at work.  Time to Change -   aims to tackle the stigma attached to mental health and strives to open up a conversation about health. “No one should be made to feel ashamed because of a mental health problem”. We understand the requirements of workers who want to be able to quickly access information and support they need, when they need it. That’s why we’ve created an app with essential employee information and benefits, which is available to all our candidates.  Looking for a change? Work for a workplace that can support you in managing your stress. Take a look at our vacancies to find a new role that suits you and your needs.

The importance of collaboration image
The importance of collaboration

​Collaboration is a key value at Thrive and when it is successful in the workplace everyone benefits, the employees and the employer. “At Thrive, we build effective relationships with our colleagues, clients, workers, and external stakeholders. We understand the power of the collective, and believe that it’s better to win as a team than fail alone.”According to the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) ‘there is a strong correlation between finding a good job match, job satisfaction and overall life satisfaction.’ If an employee is provided with the necessary skills and an environment for growth, they will feel a high level of job satisfaction which in turn has a positive and ‘a significant impact on productivity’ for the client. Respect and trust between the employer and workforce mean that employees can feel supported when they are able to ‘balance work with other responsibilities, such as family or education.’ (REC). As a result, there is a sense of community and understanding amongst the workforce and client to help improve future collaborations. The team at Thrive Group recognise that collaboration keeps everyone effectively moving towards a common goal to create a positive working environment where everyone can succeed. We at Thrive share our expertise & insight with clients to help them directly with employee management, online recruitment, and workforce planning. This eases client management responsibilities and helps them support their employees better. For the employees, managed through Thrive Group, we provide support through the recruitment process, we help them find further work when a contract is complete and we provide additional benefits through the Thrive benefits app where they can receive 24/7 private GP access, free counselling, special retail discounts and access to all their employment information in one handy place. The new Thrive Group website allows easy job searches and applications to ensure that needs of both client and candidate are satisfied through the process, and through it all the Thrive team have the resources and knowledge to ensure the candidates with the right skills are matched to the right job. The best result for everyone! Could you benefit from improved collaboration within in your workforce and with your workforce recruitment team? Contact us to discuss this further.

​The opportunities which become available to Thrive Group candidates are many and varied. To begin with, they will often be in the form of temporary work. The reasons for this are largely due to the workforce management role that the Thrive Group plays for its clients. Should the Thrive Group candidate remain in position for long enough, be suited to the role and wish to remain in the post then the Thrive Group will often see its candidates move on to become permanent staff at the client employer. Having employees begin as temporary workers, with a later move to permanent roles is a common way for employers to determine the commitment and suitability of employees. While a permanent role can often be the goal, there are a great many benefits to temporary work itself which can suit people for all kinds of reasons. ​Temporary work can provide variety, which helps to build on and improve candidates’ all-important experience.Temporary roles also offer flexibility to the employees, who can more easily change and tweak roles to suit their lifestyles. Time spent working temporary roles gives candidates a chance to learn about different job sectors and pick up skills specific to certain roles which they can then draw on and impress with should another similar temporary job then occur later in their careers. Knowledge of what the requirements and characteristics of different sectors and roles allows candidates to be more sure about what sort of roles they will aim to apply for and take in the future and how they can best showcase their skills. Temporary jobs still come with the same legal protections offered to all employees across the UK. In addition to the legal protections, Thrive Group workers can access a host of benefits, through the Thrive app. ​Find out more about the benefits of working for Thrive >Are you tempted by a temporary role?
