Description

This book reviews the current literature on the effects of work stress on employee health and performance, and how those effects may be mediated and/or moderated by both individual and group coping strategies. It explores the role of the organisation context in determining the relationships among stress, coping and health, and how manipulations of this context - organisational development - may afford opportunities to educate, encourage, support and reinforce employees coping with work stress.show more
