Stress

It's in your best interests to keep stress levels in the workplace to a minimum. If managers can act as positive role models, by remaining calm in stressful situations, then it’s much easier for employees to do likewise.

In addition, there are a number of organisational changes that you can make to reduce workplace stress. These include:

Improve communication

  • share information with employees to reduce uncertainty about their jobs and futures
  • clearly define employees’ roles and responsibilities
  • make communication friendly and efficient, not mean-spirited or petty

Consult your employees

  • give employees opportunities to participate in decisions that affect their jobs
  • consult employees about work scheduling and rules
  • be sure the workload is suitable to employees’ abilities and resources
  • avoid unrealistic deadlines
  • show that individual workers are valued
  • offer rewards and incentives
  • praise good work performance, both verbally and officially, through schemes such as Employee of the Month
  • provide opportunities for career development
  • promote an “entrepreneurial” work climate that gives employees more control over their work

Cultivate a friendly, social climate

  • provide opportunities for social interaction among employees
  • establish a zero-tolerance policy for harassment
  • make management actions consistent with organisational values
