What is Work-Related Stress?

Stress caused by work and your work situation is known as work-related stress. This need not be caused just by the work itself, personal circumstances can also make you perform less well at work. If you are exposed to chronic stress, you become unbalanced. That is usually because there is a difference between what you want to do and what you actually can do.

From work-related stress
to job satisfaction

To avoid work-related stress, it is important to enjoy your job. That way, healthy pressure at work does not turn into unhealthy work-related stress. There are different factors that can contribute to job satisfaction. Those factors vary from one person to the next. One person might value a pleasant atmosphere at work, while another finds personal development important, attending courses for example. In any case, it is important that you keep communicating with one another so you can create a pleasant atmosphere at work together. After all, prevention is better than cure!
