Job Stress

Occupational stress is prevalent in most work situations. Today, it is unrealistic to expect that jobs are stress-free. However, if the organization’s culture and the climate are such that both employer and employee are willing to work together in identifying stressful situations, stress can be minimized. Below are seven typical job stressors. Look at the list and add an additional three stressors that come from your own work experience. Rank them in descending order to determine the areas of stress most pertinent to you.

___ 1. I am trapped in situations of conflict between people who expect different things of me.
___ 2. I am overloaded—they assign more than can be done (or) more than can be done well and maintain my self-esteem.
___ 3. I have ambiguous job responsibilities; I am not clear about the scope of my job.
___ 4. I am insecure about venturing outside my normal job boundaries.
___ 5. I have difficult bosses (or subordinates).
___ 6. I worry over carrying responsibility for others.
___ 7. I lack participation in decisions affecting my job.
___ 8. _____________________________________________________________
___ 9. _____________________________________________________________
___ 10. _____________________________________________________________
