"Employers are committed to protecting workers’ from health and safety risks at the workplace, including psychosocial risks such as stress. We are convinced that good safety and health performance helps business competitiveness. Avoiding high levels of staff absence and sickness is not only positive for workers but also for business continuity. Different approaches are needed for different workplaces. Cultural and individual attitudes to stress have to be taken into account. Such issues are often extremely sensitive and personal, therefore companies need good advice and tools. We hope that this campaign will help in providing them. We are looking forward to actively engaging in the campaign to ensure that the business community’s voice is heard in this debate."
