Workplace Wellness: Exploring Effective Stress Reduction Strategies in the Workplace


With the workplace becoming increasingly fast-paced and competitive, stress is a common issue that affects a significant percentage of workers and costs businesses billions of dollars each year. This research reviews the literature to identify the typical stressors that employees across various professions face. These stressors include but are not limited to the work environment, poor communication, and struggles with work-life balance (Zippa, 2023). The research discusses how these stressors can impact a person\u27s mental and physical health Furthermore, stress can affect the workplace by reducing worker productivity, motivation, and energy levels, which are all associated with burnout (American Psychological Association, 2023). After conducting the literature review on workplace stress, we conducted a short open-response questionnaire to gain insight into how administrative employees and management at Eastern Kentucky University and a corporate office manage their own stress while also working to alleviate the stress of their employees. To maintain a healthy and happy work environment that promotes employee satisfaction and retention, it is imperative to take the steps necessary to mitigate and manage stress effectively. Through the information gained in the literature review about the causes and effects of stress and insight from the questionnaire, this research aims to give insight into how workplace wellness has been and can be achieved
