Job-related stress is on the rise, more than one in four workers are affected by work–related stress in the European Union. Studies from the World Health Organization show that work stress is believed to affect an individual’s psychological and physical health and an organisations’ effectiveness and bottom line adversely. The individual and the organisation are less likely to be successful in a competitive market.
Workers who are stressed are more likely to be unhealthy, poorly motivated, less productive and less safe at work. High levels of stress in the workplace can lead to poor decision making, and increase in mistakes that can lead to customer complaints, increases illness or absenteeism, high staff turn over and poor employee/ workplace relations. Successful employers and managers provide leadership in dealing with the challenge of work stress.
