On Wednesday, February 26th, Employers of Poland signed recommendations for reducing stress in the workplace. The agreement on the recommendations is an undoubted success of the social partners in view of the fact that the discussions took several years. It also proves that dialogue and cooperation are still possible.
The recommendations complement joint declaration of 14th November 2008, whose aim was to identify measures to make employers, employers' organizations, trade unions, and employees more aware of work-related stress and methods of reducing it. They are also one step forward in implementing the European Framework agreement on work-related stress of 8th October 2004.
