Purdue Farm Stress toolkit
Our goal is to provide you with something a little more formal to identify the needs of your employees that allows them to retain some anonymity – which in turn allows them to be more honest in their answers. Asking employees to raise their hand in a staff meeting if they’re experiencing stress at work or at home isn’t necessarily going to get you the best results, if any. We’ve done the research for you and developed a survey that you can use to really get a better understanding of what your employees are going through.
