ISSUES CONTRIBUTING TO STRESS


Organizational Issues

One additional factor that can cause increased job stress is the organization itself. As you well know, some organizations have a reputation for being wonderful places to work while others are known for their poor working environments. Organizational issues definitely play a role when it comes to individual stress levels. Organizations that pay attention to the needs of their employees encounter a more satisfied work force and a more positive work environment. Issues like professional development, employee benefits, and the level of administrative support can have a direct bearing on how people approach their daily work tasks. It is important to consider one’s work environment when looking at levels of stress. A non-supportive work environment can make all of the other challenges seem that much greater. Likewise, an environment that fosters care and a sense of teamwork can make the daily stresses of work seem far more manageable.
