Workplace anxiety and work-related anxiety

Organisation: Acas

Web page

Anxiety is a feeling of worry, fear, nervousness or unease about something. It might be caused by issues in the workplace—such as workload, performance or conflict—or by outside factors. Either way, colleagues can look out for signs that they, or their staff, might be experiencing anxiety. This short page from Acas describes the different types of anxiety and behaviours that might be a sign of it, and gives some key principles for managers to follow in supporting staff with anxiety.

As someone who has experienced anxiety but only realised it much later on, this resource is useful in helping people identify it, particularly if it’s a feeling they are unfamiliar with. Diagnosis is the first step to getting the support you need.
