The impact of stress and anxiety on productivity

The unique conditions of the maritime sector have contributed to shipping companies becoming increasingly sensitive to the mental health of their crews. A significant percentage of their employees (80%) experience occasional to frequent stress, and 60% of them suffer stress to a moderate or high degree, according to a survey carried out by the Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia.

of the seafarers experience occasional to frequent stress at sea
of them suffer stress in the moderate to high category

These indicators have a direct impact on a company's performance, productivity and competitiveness

As a result, and despite the particular limitations of the working environment of the maritime industry, the sector must have strategies in place that contribute to lowering the impact that stress factors have individually on the health of each seafarer. All in all, the company’s success depends to a large extent on the wellbeing of their employees

Sea Wellbeing promotes mental health and productivity, as well as the integration of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in the maritime sector

Strategy

Our extensive experience in the maritime sector, both on board and on land, gives us an overall view of the principal needs of both crew and company. All of our services have been developed with a cognitive-behavioural approach enhanced with other multidisciplinary techniques, due to its proven high effectiveness in both preventing and managing stress and anxiety. Therefore, our main objectives are:

Stress & anxiety prevention

This enables the early identification of symptoms and provides the necessary tools to prevent them becoming chronic and pathological. Highly recommended for new hires

Stress & anxiety management

This provides strategies that are able to reduce the impact that stress factors have on health and wellbeing. Recommended for seafarers presenting non-adaptive symptoms who need tools to improve their quality of life on the ship
