The PCS approach to coping with stress enables people to deal with their personal realities and adopt an active approach to dealing with the causes and effects of stress.
Our Current Realities:
•   People have to do more with less resulting in continuous pressure at work.
   Work pressure cascades into personal life resulting in imbalances
   Diversity in workplace unfamiliar territory for most employees
   Negative stress results in low productivity and increased absenteeism at work.
   People who do not cope find it difficult to embark on productive relationships in work teams and in
    personal life
   People who do not cope with stress results in a direct cost to company
   Canada 1994: Cost of non coping employees to business $14 billion
   USA 1995: Cost of non coping employees to business $56 billion
   Great Britain: Cost of non coping employees to business £70 billion
   Absenteeism  in British companies cost £14 million in two organisations
   Enable employees to cope with stress by means of an intervention supporting the development and
    implementation of active coping strategies
