Work-related stress is a growing problem around the world that affects not only the health and well-being of employees but also the productivity of organisations.
Work-related stress is the second most common compensated illness/injury in Australia, after musculoskeletal disorders.
It can be caused by various events. For example, a person might feel under pressure if the demands of their job are greater than they can comfortably manage.
Other sources of work-related stress include conflict with co-workers or bosses, constant change, and threats to job security, such as potential redundancy.
