There are two types of methods to manage the stresswithin the company and those are individual and organizational level. Since myemployees are already in s tight schedule, I do not think that there is enoughtime for individual methods, that is why I will use a reactive method that is Iwill use a five step problem solving approach to dealing with workplace stressadopted from Cooper and Cartwright 1994. (page 304)- Step 1 – as theperson in charge of the company I need to be aware that my company has notcaused any damages to my employees, therefore methods such as monitoringemployees to find out whether there are any signs of stress, training employeesto monitor themselves for signs of stress and by paying attention to employeereports. These mentioned reasons need to be monitored in order to not letanything go unnoticed.
Step 2 – the cause of the stressor needs to be identified either byencouraging employees to record their stress level or by organizing stressaudits. This is very important since these issuesneed to be identified as long as they have little power to cause big damages. – Step 3 – the stressor needs to be eliminated or changed by encouragingemployees to be more resistance to stress and by changing/eliminating thestressor.
This is a reference to what I have been repeating constantly, tochange positions in order to be exposed to higher levels of stress causes.Since we will ask our employees to prioritize or have a trade-off betweenactivities, and we will take a course regarding time management. – Step 4 – in case the stressorcannot be changed or eliminated then other cures need to be identified such asoffering training and help to employees in coping with stress let it be byconsulting or any other successful way. – Step 5 – after everything issaid and done then we move on to monitoring and reviewing of the process so farby evaluating the solutions of the problems.
If anything went wrong along the process,then we return to previous steps.
