Many Australians may experience what beyondblue chief executive officer Kate Carnell labels as the 'back to work blues', as they return to work after the summer holidays.
It's not only the return to work that may contribute to feeling the blues or experiencing stress, health problems may also add to the situation.
You can help your employees to get a great start to the year by employing business health plans in your company.
Business health insurance can aid in ensuring they get the appropriate medical treatment and care needed.
"Enjoying a relaxing holiday one minute, then suddenly returning to a regimented and sometimes stressful working environment can be tough," said Ms Carnell.
She says that within a week people should just get back into the normal swing of things, and if you don't there may be an underlying problem that needs to be addressed.
"For example, if you are feeling panicked, moody, irritable or sad about being at work and these feelings persist, it may be a sign of depression or anxiety," said Ms Carnell.
Ms Carnell said that anyone experiencing these symptoms for over two weeks should seek help from their GP or call the beyondblue info line on 1300 22 4636.
"Stress in the workplace can lead to depression and anxiety which means more sick days and reduced productivity. Having a happy and healthy workforce benefits both the employees and their bosses."
