Management Skills (MGMT622)
Assignment No. 02
Marks: 10
For decades, researchers in the area of occupational health have examined the relationship between
job strain and stress-related behavioral, psychological and physiological outcomes. Studies have
focused on various components of job strain, including level of task demand i.e. the pressure to
work quickly or excessively, the level of individual control i.e. the freedom to vary the work pace
and the level of intellectual challenge i.e. the extent to which work is interesting. Research in this
area has challenged the common myth that job strain occurs most frequently at the executive level.
However, low-level workers tended to have a higher incidence of heart disease than their bosses
who were in high-status, presumably success oriented, managerial or professional occupations.
This is true because certain characteristics of lower-level positions tend to produce higher levels
of job strain because of the high demand, low control, low discretion, and low interest. A review
of research suggests that the single most important contributor to stress is lack of freedom at
workplace.
On the other hand, workers are thinking of quitting their jobs, repeated downsizings have
introduced new threats to the workplace, financial pressures are escalating, crime is pervasive and
worker compensation claims for stress-related illness are ballooning.
Question:
In response to these dynamics briefly explain how to eliminate these situational stressors at
workplace that proves to be effective in reducing stress and in increasing satisfaction and
productivity.
