Katja Henge and Alexander Knütter speak at the SGS Auditors Meeting on the topic of Psychosocial Stress analysis.

The sharp increase in the number of work days lost to psycho-social stress in the workplace has caught the attention of lawmakers. Since 2013, all companies have been required to carry out a risk assessment on the psycho-social distress of their employees, (GBU) and if necessary, develop and implement measures to reduce these burdens.
As well as looking at the background to the problem and methods for dealing with the issue, Katja and Alexander demonstrated how companies can generate considerable benefits for employees and their own business from this new obligation.
