In addition, currently for organizations and businesses the following causes of stress response can be identified:

- Emerging inside the organization;

- Emerging outside of an organization and not related to it;

- Related to the relationships inside a team/organization.

- Lack of team spirit, when an employee does not feel a sense of belonging, including when a manager does not allow for it to happen and when others do not accept the employee to be part of the team;

- Conflict situation in a team – serious disagreements within a team, when personal values ​​of an individual employee are not in line with the values ​​accepted by the other team members.

Cause of stress emerging inside of an organization

This is the most extensive group of causes, which include the following related to work environment:  

- Fear of losing your job due to cuts, low performance indicators of any or other reasons;

- Inability to have influence in the workplace;

- The nature of the work and working conditions;

- Role conflicts;

- A unique organizational structure, where an employee is forced to execute the decisions of two or more managers;

- Stress-inducing and authoritarian style of the management;

- Unfavorable work schedule.

Prevention and dealing with stress at work

Prevention of work-related stress mainly includes:

- Diagnostics and identification of stressful conditions of employees;

- Elimination of the causes of stress that are related to the organization of work and workplaces (levels of noise, etc.);
