Topic 2 Individual factors

  • Family members, peers, superiors, and subordinates all have different expectations of the employee. Failure to comprehend or communicate such expectations results in role ambiguity/role conflict, which generates employee stress. Inherent personality qualities such as impatience, aggression, rigidity, and a constant sense of time pressure, among others, contribute to employee stress. Family troubles, personal financial problems, and abrupt work changes all contribute to stress.
