Research output: Contribution in Book/Report/Proceedings - With ISBN/ISSNChapter



Against a background of mounting research evidence (Cooper & Payne, 1988), there can be little dispute that stress has a dysfunctional impact on both individual and organizational outcomes. Links have been demonstrated between stress and the incidence of Coronary Heart Disease, mental breakdown, poor health behaviors, job dissatisfaction, accidents, family problems and certain forms of cancer (e.g., McLean, 1980; Frese, 1985; Cooper & Watson, 1991). Almost half of all premature deaths in the U.K. are attributed to lifestyle and stress-related illnesses (Palmer, 1989).
