Today’s fast paced world leaves quite a bit of room for employees to be stressed. If this stress goes unnoticed it can really impact the way a business operates and the success. Therefore, it is important to identify potential stressors and strategies to help reduce this stress. This article explores this ever important topic.
- Increasing numbers of disputes within the staff, high turnover, more absenteeism, and frequent complaints and grievances can all be signs of stress throughout the workplace.
- A muddled management structure, or one where people have conflicting roles, frequently causes stress. A clear hierarchy where everyone feels valued and understands their responsibilities is better.
- Stress can often be a function of employees feeling that they are in over their heads. Workplaces that establish clear expectations and train workers for the jobs they do experience lower collective stress levels.
