It is now well-known that while stress is ever-present in our lives, and the right degree of stress can be a healthy and helpful stimulus, excessive amounts can lead to heart disease, breakdown and even death. It is not, however, so widely realized that stress can lead to a noticeable drop in workrate and job performance, and that these symptoms can be understood and measured in order to prevent the onset of serious risk. "Managing Stress in the Workplace" explains in layman's language exactly what stress is, and how to monitor if an employee is over (or, indeed, under) stressed. It shows managers the best ways of reducing stress in the workplace so that staff are working both to their own best advantage and to that of the organization. It also offers insights into the ways employees seek to reduce stress by "coping" tactics - chief amongst which are smoking and heavy drinking, both potentially dangerous to the individual and to the success of his or her business.
