Work stress

Work stress can have very serious consequences for a person’s health. In the case of a short-term stressor, the health effects may be temporary and quickly recede. If the stressor affects the employee for a long time, however, it can lead to a loss of capacity for work.

Typical health effects include: headache, attention and memory impairments, decreased productivity, sleep disturbances, fatigue, anxiety, burnout, decreased immunity, increased susceptibility to diseases, and the exacerbation of chronic diseases and mood disorders. The conscious management of work stressors and work helps keep employees happy, productive, and satisfied.
