Occupational stress

tensions related to workplace responsibilities or situations, and their negative health and psychological effects

Occupational stress is psychological stress related to one's job.


  • I am pretty confident in saying that the physiological stress levels (as measured by cortisol) of bosses are lower than their employees—in other words, the bosses are not as stressed as the employees they manage, this is shown not just by my study, but loads of other studies that show exactly the same results. Stress levels increase (not decrease) as we go from the top of the occupational ladder to the bottom.
