Description of the tool:
It's not easy to tell if you're just a bit overworked and ready for the holiday or if the stress is making you sick. Your employees may also be exhausted due to constant stress.

It can be used without external consultants.

How to use the tool:
Please tick "yes" if the respective statement is correct. Please choose "yes" or "no", even if it is difficult for you. In the first part of the stress check, you will find some typical symptoms that will give you clues as to whether your stress exposure is already leading to signs of chronic fatigue or physical illness. In the second part, you will find corresponding statements on signs that indicate stress among employees in your company. After processing the two parts of the check, please consider which points you would like to actively tackle in the future: - Where do you see a need for action? - What opportunities for improvement are there? Please enter the necessary measures in the action plan.
