Summary

Stress in the workplace is on the rise, resulting in higher rates of absenteeism, reduced productivity, and increased health compensation claims. Managing Workplace Stress examines the cause of this increase in work-related stress, with a particular emphasis on stress created by organizational changes including redesigning of jobs, reallocations of roles and responsibilities, and the accompanying job insecurities. It highlights the everyday stressors likely to impact managers and employees, such as working with difficult people and managing increased workloads. This insightful new volume also offers useful and practical strategies for dealing with these situations. This up-to-date volume will be of particular interest to human resource professionals, organizational change consultants, and students in the areas of management studies, human resources, industrial psychology, public administration, and social and personality psychology.
