The Best Ways to Manage Office Stress

The Best Ways to Manage Office Stress | Organisations matters | Scoop.it
Forget group complaint sessions and the old count-to-10 advice.

 

Some 70% of Americans know the feeling: Some time during the workday, the stomach tightens. The heart races. Palms grow damp, breathing becomes shallow.

 

Job pressures are the No. 2 cause of stress after financial worries, a recent survey shows. And while most of us struggle to manage the stress of a demanding boss or a mounting workload on our own, more employers are trying to help. Efforts include earnest-sounding techniques like "mindful communication" and "cognitive behavioral training" as well as office designs featuring leafy, plant-covered walls.

A Third of Executives Consider Quitting In Their First 90 Days

A Third of Executives Consider Quitting In Their First 90 Days | Organisations matters | Scoop.it

Senior executives are being poorly recruited and entered into UK organisations, according to new research from executive search firm Harvey Nash, with more than one in three (39 per cent) finding their start so bad they considered walking away from the organisation within the first three months. As a result of incomplete and inaccurate information about the role and organisation, one in five executives feel they do not fit in well with their business.


Executives say they could be on average 50 per cent more productive if their start in the business had been better organised, with executives who had a positive start evaluating themselves as significantly more effective. This effect is further amplified by lost productivity cascading through the team the executive is leading, so the actual cost of failing to onboard an executive in a way that delivers a good return on a company's investment in them runs into tens of thousands.
