In today’s economy, almost everyone feels workplace stress. Even the perfect job has stressful deadlines and other seemingly unreasonable expectations. While a bit of workplace stress is expected, even motivating, too much stress can interfere with productivity and motivation. It can impact employee (and employer) mental, emotional, and physical health.
People experience stress in the workplace in three primary ways:
Stress generated from within a person
Stress generated from the work environment
Stress from a poor job fit.
Ignoring these sources of stress can lead to accidents in the workplace, injuries, and even more stress. Stress from one of these sources can be challenging to overcome, but workplace stress from more than one of these sources can be debilitating.
The Coping with Stress in the Workplace Workbook provides assessments and self-guided activities to help participants learn valuable skills for understanding and coping with the various forms of workplace stress.
