Stress in the Workplace: Should I increase or decrease it?

When we hear the word “stress” most of us associate it with negative effects and emotions. The truth is that stress in some situations can be a positive, both in the workplace and other areas of life. However, another truth is that the negative effects of stress in business can cause discomfort to the individual, low company morale, and strain on the budget.
