A stressor is any situation or condition that causes an employee physical, emotional, or mental stress. The effects of stress on the human body can include reduced sleep, negative health impacts, damaged personal and professional relationships, reduced productivity, and a lessened sense of well-being and quality of life. Employers can take steps through wellness programs and other forms of assistance to help employees manage stress and reduce its impact on their lives.
