In today’s competitive world, companies are in constant race to garner maximum profits from minimum costs. This brings in targets and deadlines and the desire for more output from fewer people. The result is longer working hours for the employees under the stress of meeting deadlines without compromising quality. In course of time, it begins to affect their personal as well as family life.
Companies use a number of stress-buster mechanisms: get-togethers in which tension is washed off in pegs of liquor, dance and games. Employees are also given incentive-visits to places of picnic.
Are there alternate ways of handling workplace stress?
I work on the theory that stress has two components — the physical and the mental. The physical stress is the same when we are playing a game of cricket or when we are doing some boring job we don’t like. It is the mental perception of that physical stress that makes a game enjoyable and the boring job a burden.
The trick then lies in training our employees to change their perception. If those working in the industries contact me over my phone +919840093148 or my email ID email@example.com I would be glad to share these techniques with them.
