Workplace stress is defined, by the Priory healthcare service, as a negative reaction to excessive demands or pressure placed on a person from their work.
Workplace stress has a big impact on both employees and employers. For employees it can lead to less productivity, unhappiness on the job, an increase in sick days taken and physical ailments; ultimately, it can lead to a form of depression called burnout.
Workplace stress can also spill over into people’s lives, leading to worsening personal relationships.
For employers and the business as a whole, workplace stress can lead to a loss of revenue and a quick turnaround in employees. It can also lead to a toxic workplace, low morale among employees and a reputation of not being a good place to work.
