The Stress Report.
A modern compass for a new, smarter, more productive way of working.
How can it help?
Whether you're a pioneering entrepreneur trying to attract and keep the best people, or an overworked employee just trying to find a better way to get all this crazy workload done, The Stress Report is a modern compass for a new, smarter, more productive way of working.
Forget the old concept of working harder. Counter intuitively, it isn’t working. It makes us less creative, less inspiring to be around, and it turns out the badge of honour of working all the hours makes us less productive too. Triple dumb.
The smart companies are escaping the rat race old way of working, and waking up to the fact that their biggest asset are their people, and for them to do their most innovative work, they need to think different’. But in order to do that, they need to work different.
And there is a better way of working. It’s just not the way we have been doing it. The ‘Stress Report’ is a modern blueprint for a better way of working and living.
You can make Stress work for you—Honestly, you can.
The Do Lectures has conducted a 134 page report to look at which companies look after their people the best, what new techniques are being used, what perks alleviate stress, what foods we should eat more of, and why every company should have a C.W.O. (Chief Wellbeing Officer).

The Stress Report also includes real-life experiments, and has interviews and Q&A’s with Tina Roth Eisenberg, Michael Acton Smith, Joshua Fields Millburn and Tim Leberecht among others. With original artwork and illustration from Paula Troxler, Anthony Burrill, Lauren Crow and Emer Tumilty.
It will be supported by a podcast series hosted by Mark Shayler. Plus there will be a one day ‘Do Ideas Day’ event in London in September which will look further into the theme of stress. And how we can make it make so much better for you and your business.
