6.8Potential sources of stress:
« on: March 29, 2017, 01:58:35 PM »

There are three categories of potential stressors: environmental organizational and personal. These are discussed below-

A.   Environment Factors: Just as environmental uncertainty influences the design of a organizations structure it also influences stress levels among employees in that organization.
i)   Economic uncertainty:  Changes in the business cycle create economic uncertainties. When the economy is contracting for example, people become increasingly devious about their job security.

ii)   Political uncertainty: Political uncertainties create stress among the employees of the organization. Hartal, Strike etc. cause the political uncertainties.

iii)   Technological uncertainty: Technological uncertainties are that type of environmental factor which can cause stress. Because new innovation can make an employees skills and experience absolute in a very short time, computers, robotics, automation and similar forms of technological innovation are a threat to many people and cause them stress.
