Managing Stress at Work

Pressure is a part of everyday life. Managing stress however requires skill and understanding

When the pressure is a source of stimulation and creativity this can be a positive experience. If it becomes a source of worry or tension however, then it will be a negative experience. If people experience an inappropriate amount of negative pressures over a period of time they will become stressed. Learning how to manage stress is a crucial skill for all managers and individuals alike.

Stress at work

Stress can be caused through relationships and the environment at work. Managing stress at work is now recognised as one of the major challenges in today's workplace. The Health and Safety Executive confirm that as many as one in five people are suffering high levels of work-related stress.

Stress can, amongst other things, lead to poor staff performance and lower productivity, higher sickness absence and staff turnover and a breakdown in co-operation and effective working relationships. Currently trades unions are actively supporting hundreds of cases through the courts.

Whilst an organisation cannot remove all sources of stress it can begin managing any issues by adopting some important principles and implementing some practical solutions that will help all the employees to work in a healthier workplace.
