Can anxiety pop-up in a workplace? Ain’t a cliche, but anxiety is everywhere. A research found out that about 40% of the employees feel stressed during workdays. While some say this stress is productive, anxiety is not. Anxiety in a workplace can lead to many negative consequences.
Workplace anxiety can be because of anything ranging from dealing with deadlines, talking to managers, problems with presentations to just a thought about the workplace. And the most important thing before diagnosing it as workplace anxiety is that your anxiety is limited to work. If this ain’t true, then it can be a symptom of anxiety disorder.
So as anxiety is a response to stress, workplace anxiety can be defined as a response to the stress at work.
The signs or symptoms of workplace anxiety can be observed during work situations which include –
As an Employee:
Workplace anxiety can be really difficult for an employee to cope up with. Here are a few techniques one can use to lower their anxiety, or even prevent that.
As an Employer:
Workplace anxiety is a problem of an employee, but it not only affects the employee, but brings unwanted consequences to the company too. But a company cannot fire every employee that has been burnt out. Instead they can prevent their employees from getting workplace anxiety.
An organizational culture plays a very important role in the lives of the employees. Every company cannot provide amenities like those which MNCs can afford. But small changes that make the employee feel safe, will create a good perception towards the company they’re working with. Employees will feel connected to the company and thus, will also become intrinsically motivated to work.
An employee should know their task’s significance. When they know it, they understand why they’re doing what they’re doing. This helps them to provide better services. When they understand their task’s significance, they feel involved in the company, rather than working for it.
Feedback is one of the most important things in a workplace. It has the power to increase or decrease the performance. Thus employers should be careful with the words they use, and point out at the best first. Feedback should also include the task identity of an employee. This gives the employee meaningfulness in the work they do.
