Prevention courses held on individual approaches to stress
Liechtensteinische Landesbank AG (LLB) takes its employees' wellbeing very seriously. This is why, in recent years, LLB has continued to systematically develop its health management offering. It therefore came as no surprise when, in 2020, LLB was the first Liechtenstein bank to be granted the "Friendly Workspace" award by the Swiss health promotion organisation "Gesundheitsförderung Schweiz". The aim was therefore to provide employees with tools and strategies for how to deal constructively with individual stress and mental health problems.
After a discussion with long-term cooperation party HR Campus, LLB decided to hold a one-day stressfit stress prevention seminar as a pilot event towards the end of 2021. During this seminar, a group of interested employees received training on individual, personal techniques for dealing with stress. The pilot project was very well received by all the participants, which is why three more live stress prevention events were planned for 2022. LLB chose the Gaflei Clinic in Triesenberg, another of LLB's health service providers and cooperation partner, as the venue for the next three events. Amongst other things, it focuses on mindfulness, healthy sleep, exercise and health-promoting activities, which the stressfit course also emphasises. It was therefore possible to hold the seminar in a wonderful, idyllic location, surrounded by nature, with a view of the Swiss and Liechtenstein mountains, well away from the mundane working day.
The stressfit seminar provided participants with valuable knowledge that goes far beyond the classic themes of time management or emergency strategies. Through a theoretical section and life-like practical exercises, LLB's employees learnt how to recognise stress mechanisms in various situations and at various stages so they can make their personal approach to stress more constructive. They therefore not only benefit in the professional environment as employees, but will also be able to apply the knowledge they have acquired in various (family) situations in their personal lives.
Happily, employees showed such great interest in these three events that LLB will offer stressfit again next year.
"Very competent, empathetic and friendly. I will work on the topic, it has motivated me. Highly recommended!"
"Strategies for dealing with stress yourself was great input!"
"I found it really very interesting to identify one's own sensitive points and learn how to deal with these."
