Stress is the invisible, malicious enemy of both productivity and happiness in the workplace. Stress can strike anyone at any time and can be caused by a variety of factors that go unseen unless you look for them.
Everyone has felt stress at one point or another (it’s part of being human), and there’s no shame in feeling like you’re going to succumb to it. A good workplace is somewhere that workers feel like they don’t have to bottle up stress but can find a way to deal with it in a healthy way.
When people bottle up stress, it causes outbursts that can make them seem like the bad guy when they are actually just a victim of something else. To avoid stress-related misunderstandings, stress management is essential in the workplace.
Without stress management in the workplace, productivity will suffer, and the overall mood will sour.
