Managing Workplace Stress

Managing Workplace Stress

February 1997 | 192 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
`Written primarily for the employee, this book is a gold mine of easily assimilated information and ideas which should also be of value to anyone working in human resources' - Personnel Today

`Much of the literature on stress tends to be either academic or research-based, or otherwise focuses on the more practical aspects of stress management. Managing Workplace Stress strikes a balance between the two in providing background and discussion that puts many areas of work-related stress into context, as well as giving helpful practical advice on managing particular stressors' - People Management

Stress in the workplace is an ever-increasing problem and its consequences, such as higher rates of absenteeism, reduced productivity and increased health compensation claims, are widespread. This book examines the causes of the increase in work-related stress.

Susan Cartwright and Cary L Cooper focus particularly on the stress created by organizational changes including job redesign, reallocation of roles and responsibilities, and the accompanying job insecurities. They highlight the everyday stressors likely to impact upon managers and employees - for example, working with difficult people and managing increased work loads - and offer useful strategies for dealing with these various situations.
