STRESS at work has increased significantly over the years; it may have adverse consequences on the health of employees, but also on the « health » of the company.
STRESS FACTORS: Among the various causes, the main categories are related to :
The context-content of work to be done: work overload.
Work organization: division of labour – the contradiction between the job requirements and the reality of the job requirements.
Labour relations: lack of communication and recognition, authoritarian management.
The physical and technical environment: white noise, lack of space.
The socio-economic environment of the company: uncertainty about the future of the business, thus leading to a negatively-fueled competitive attitude.
