ABSTRACT
The article focuses on job stress and the need for business organizations to address stress among its employees. Stress rarely happens in isolation or to one individual. When someone begins to get stressed there will be a ripple effect spreading out from them. Stress is likely to lead to problems within the business. These will affect the bottom-line, directly or indirectly. The most obvious impact can be loss of business, maybe through poor service, or poor quality. Your costs certainly rise, whether because of lower productivity or having to correct or rework mistakes. An employer or manager need to pay attention to what is happening in the workplace regarding stress.
