A stressful workplace – a psychological perspective

Many adults spend most of their daily time at work. Thus, it is not surprising that the characteristics of a workplace significantly affect mental and physical health (Siegrist, 2002). Working individuals value their quality of life higher than unemployed individuals (Ruchlin & Morris, 1991). On the other hand, psychological and medical research has shown that stress at work is associated with numerous mental and physical impairments.
