Psychology at Work: Promoting well-being is not just a sticking plaster

There's a subtle but important difference between reducing stress and promoting well-being.

Mental ill-health costs UK plc a lot of money - possibly as much as £28bn per annum, according to some estimates. So far solutions have focused on reducing stress - but MT blogger Professor Binna Kandola argues in his new 'Psychology at Work' blog that we should be thinking in terms of well-being instead: 'When we place stress in the foreground we try to find ways of reducing or eliminating its causes. Well-being, however, means we begin to search for ways of making work a more meaningful and enjoyable experience'. But how do we go about doing that? Click here to read Binna's thoughts and tell us what you think.
