The Stress Center Kelowna: Corporate Workshops
What We Offer:
The Stress Center was originally founded by Dr. Calista and Vern Ward. With 30 years of combined counseling experience, they have not only provided therapeutic counseling services and treatment for anxiety, but they are also professional facilitators. Together, Calista and Vern have led workshops, retreats, and seminars, and they are available to provide customized presentations.
If you’re looking for speakers who combine a wealth of medical and therapeutic knowledge, decades of practical counsellor experience, and the ability to make a public speaking event informative and fun, the Wards are the clear choice for the next event for your company, church, or organization.
In 2015, a working paper was published by Harvard and Stanford Business Schools. It examined 10 stressors in the professional world, such as job insecurity and long working hours, and their effects upon employees.
The results were alarming. Health problems originating from stress at work, such as decreased mental health, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease, led to fatal conditions that killed approximately 120,000 people on an annual basis. These work-related stressors are more fatal than the flu, diabetes, or Alzheimer’s Disease. Plus, when stress prevents employees from getting a good night’s sleep or living up to their full potential, productivity takes a hit and profits start to slow down.
However, a company that is mindful of the effects of stress and provides wellness and workforce resilience training, as well as anxiety treatment options, will gain:
- Reduced medical costs
- Lower absenteeism
- More productive workers
- Less workplace drama
- Higher employee retention
At the Stress Center we offer packages that include:
- Workshops on-site or at our offices
- Online webinars
- Follow up support for employees
