Organisational Stress Management

Organisational stress has been defined by Ross and Altmaier as “the interaction of work conditions with characteristics of the worker such that the demands of the work exceed the ability of the worker to cope with them“. Stress in the workplace is a growing problem leading to increased absences due to ill health, lower productivity, lower growth, a poorly motivated workforce, cynicism and burnout to name but a few of the effects of stress. Hatvany (1996) suggests that organisations that undertake stress management are:

  • a healthier, more committed workforce
  • lower turnover of staff
  • improved health and safety levels
  • better customer relations
  • less risk of litigation
  • better teamwork
  • smoother mergers or acquisitions
