Work better, feel better

Stress at work isn't just a personal problem; it affects the whole team and the bottom line. That's where emotional fitness comes in. It's about giving everyone the tools to handle pressure and challenges on the job. When people feel better, they work better. Fewer sick days, more focus, and a stronger team mean real savings for the business.

Practical skills for everyday success

5th Place’s stress management workshops for emotional fitness are hands-on and practical. We're not just talking about feelings; we're talking about real skills to get the job done without the stress. Time management, working together, staying healthy on the job - these are things that make a difference every single day. Emotional fitness is about employees working smarter, not harder, and saving money along the way.

Stress management investment vs return

Global studies show an average return on investment (ROI) of 4.23 for every unit invested in stress management*. What does this mean for your organisation? Simply put, for every unit of currency you invest in stress management programs—be it a Rand, dollar, euro, or any other—you can generally expect a return of 4.23 times that amount.

The high ROI is a result of multiple benefits such as increased productivity, reduced absenteeism, and lower healthcare costs. Employees who manage stress effectively are more focused, engaged, and efficient, positively impacting your organization's bottom line. Investing in stress management isn't just good for employee well-being; it's also a financially smart decision.

*Note: The 4.23 ROI figure is an aggregated average from multiple global studies and may vary by organization.
