Abstract

Measuring the level of stress in organizations and the potential risks of stress associated with jobs is an important part of preventing and coping with it. An organization needs to know if any of its employees could be vulnerable or at risk. By measuring stress, employers will raise their awareness of its causes and help those suffering from excessive stress by taking action to reduce the causes. It is also important to conduct an assessment once an employee has experienced a stress-related illness: this enables a manager to decide on the best way to manage that individual, thus preventing a recurrence.
