"Work-related stress is the second most frequently reported work-related health problem in Europe, yet around four in ten workers think that stress is not handled well in their workplace. However, across Europe there are numerous companies who are determined to manage it, and the Good Practice Awards seek to put them in the spotlight. By tackling work-related stress they are benefitting the health of their workers and the productivity of their business. These awards will give visibility across the EU to their achievements, in the hope that other workplaces will follow their example." Director of The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) Dr Christa Sedlatschek said.

The Jury will look for winners who are committed to successfully managing work-related stress and other psychosocial risks, through the joint efforts of both employers and workers.
