WORKPLACE ISSUES

Key issues include matching people and jobs, finding ways to reduce workplace stress and studying people’s motivation and job satisfaction.Bullying isn’t confined to childhood—it also happens in the workplace, where it’s gathering more research attention.

Everyone who has ever held a job has, at some point, felt the pressure of work-related stress. Any job can have stressful elements, even if you love what you do. When work stress becomes chronic, it can be overwhelming — and harmful to both physical and emotional health. You can’t always avoid the tensions that occur on the job. Yet you can take steps to manage work-related stress. Certain factors tend to go hand-in-hand with work-related stress.

Some common workplace stressors are:

  • Low salaries.
  • Excessive workloads.
  • Few opportunities for growth or advancement.
  • Work that isn’t engaging or challenging.
  • Lack of social support.
  • Not having enough control over job-related decisions.
  • Conflicting demands or unclear performance expectations.
