Role of Human Resource Manager in Managing Stress of Employees in Manufacturing Concerns
Managing work related stress in employees and role of an HR manager are instrinsically correlated. Well organized and effectively and effectively managed work helps in promoting and maintaining the well-being and health of an employee. But in a scenario where insufficient priority has been given to the work organization, job design, and management, a significant portion of benefits and efficiency can be lost with respect to ‘good work.’ And, one of the most common results of this is stress!!! The first step in helping employees cope is to find out what is causing the most stress and what an employee's idea of a stress-free environment would be. If employees are not comfortable talking to a manager, the manager should make arrangements for the employee to speak to someone else. Managers can decrease stress by setting clear expectations, helping employees prioritize, being available to listen to employee concerns, and not tolerating any workplace bullying or harassing. Organizations should encourage stress relief by providing a safe and pleasant workplace, a relaxing break room in which to eat, a nutritious selection of food at the cafeteria, access to a gym, and resources to reduce stress for employees.
