Stress has recently overtaken the common cold as the most common cause of sick leave in many European countries and is a major cause of concern for companies worldwide. Why then do most of the 'Coping with Stress' texts to be found in bookshops consider this a problem only to be tackled by the Individual? Organizational Stress Management is different, it shows how companies can boost performance by adopting integrated organizational strategies to identify and reduce stress in their employees. Including practical advice on how to conduct a stress audit and how to target stress 'hot spots' with an organization, Organizational Stress Management provides a fresh strategic model for the manager concerned with the negative effects stress can have both on company performance and the quality of life of individuals at work. This is the latest book from best-selling stress management author, Cary Cooper, and will be eagerly awaited by HR Directors, Organizational Consultants. Occupational Psychologists, Managing Directors and all managers who wish to work with healthy, stable and productive staff.
