Workplace Stress

Workplace stress refers to the physical and emotional strain experienced by employees due to excessive workloads, unrealistic expectations, conflicts, or other factors that negatively impact their well-being. HR professionals are tasked with identifying and mitigating sources of stress in the workplace, creating a healthy and supportive environment. They develop stress management programs, offer resources for employees, and encourage a work culture that promotes work-life balance and mental health. Effectively addressing workplace stress is crucial for maintaining employee morale, reducing absenteeism, and fostering a productive and harmonious work environment, which ultimately benefits both employees and the organization.
