Being stressed due to work can result in decreased productivity in the workplace. Because of that, it may be the reason for a business to begin to falter because work is not being done as efficiently as it once was. Here are some probable reasons why an employee gets workplace-related stress:

  • High workload. Workload should always be what an employee can reasonably accomplish. Do not be irrational.
  • Unclear guidelines may lead to confusion, thus, resulting in errors. Frustrations need to be addressed and instructions clarified so that the situation doesn’t worsen.
  • Receiving no feedback may also be a reason an employee becomes stressed, as he will be unsure whether he’s accomplishing the assigned tasks to your satisfaction.
  • Constant bombardment of instructions, failures and deadlines. Don’t hover over and employee as it will only make him nervous.
  • Unending responsibilities, resulting to lack of rest.
  • Conflict between employees.
  • Having a job not suited to the skills an employee has.
  • Poor job security.

These are just some of the probable reasons for workplace-related stress that must be worked on to ensure that an employee is progressing in the chosen career, thus, resulting in increased productivity in the workplace.
