Stress Work Make You Sick

Stress Work Make You Sick, Flu season is also known in the workplace, sick season. We address those frustrating months of the year when colds, viruses and other meetings of a variety of insects delay the timing of the project and head to keep people home.

That is, if they feel they can take that risk in an economy in recession, especially if they have paid sick leave. A survey this year found that nearly three quarters of people have gone to work when ill, a number that is almost certainly due to people who fear for the safety of their jobs. At the same time, almost two thirds of employers who responded to a survey by human resources consultancy Watson Torres say they have been working more hours in the last three years. And as the company announced last week, 31 percent of companies say their employees are using less of their free time.

It would be no surprise, then, working long hours puts you at greater risk of disease. However, this very well, can not be the main aspect of the work that makes you sick, according to a recent study & work stress, an academic journal published by the European Academy of Occupational Health Psychology said that PsyBlog Tuesday. That dubious distinction is reserved, however, for the organization limitations, or may not have the time or resources available to do their job.

The study, called “meta-analysis” of the 79 studies explored the relationship reported in each of them between the physical and stress-inducing factors at work. While not trying to study the “causality” or tensions that undoubtedly caused the symptoms, he was seen in which stressors, organizational constraints, interpersonal conflict, role conflict, role ambiguity, the load working hours and lack of control-is most associated with several physical symptoms, gastrointestinal problems headaches to sleep disorders that can cause illness.

After the limitations of the organization, stress is correlated with physical ailments was “role conflict” or being told by a supervisor to do one thing and another to do something else. It was followed by interpersonal conflicts (shoots with co-workers), workload (obviously, is expected to do more), and role ambiguity (not knowing what is expected of you), in that order. Only after these five stressors in long hours into the game, ranking sixth on the list, followed finally by the feeling of a lack of control.

As a result, while the long hours may be able to do harm-particularly through the creation of eye strain, back problems and problems with sleep, is unlikely to be the most important factor in diseases. In contrast, the less the long hours spent at work and more emphasis on, such as tight deadlines, fighting with peers or confusion about the job at hand, you might have to work late in the first place.

This, like most studies of the species, it is not surprising. But for leaders, is a reminder to keep your people well and healthy and productive at work, you should worry less about asking them to work late on a project or to fill some occasional overtime when times get tough . They care more about whether they have the resources they need to have healthy relationships with their teams, and it is clear in their jobs, so what are their responsibilities and that those responsible for them.
