The purpose of this study is to examine the Impact of Stress Management within Organizations and its Effects on Employees’ Performance. Stress is an unavoidable factor in everyone’s lives. People deal with it more than once in their lifetime. Stress may be defined as a feeling of physical, psychological or emotional tension which is developed by different circumstances or events that occur in our lives.

In every organization, employees are the backbone that ensures the smooth running of the business. But as a matter of fact, these employees are ordinary people who are vulnerable to any and all threats, be it physical, emotional and psychological and this includes stress. It can cause them to lose focus in their activities and accumulate low yield or performance in most or all their functions seeing as they will be too distracted thinking about their own problems to do their work.

Despite that, stress can also be positive because it pushes people to do more and fulfill their obligations. It can add an extra boost to your way of thinking and their pace of doing their work.

Moreover, stress is not uncontrollable. It can be managed in order to protect any sort of negative impacts/ effects. This is what is called stress management. It is defined as the method or techniques of handling or controlling stress. Stress management has a huge effect on employees and their performance as it brings about positivity and competence, therefore, it has an even greater impact on the organization because if their employees are stress free, they are at least 95% focused in their duties, thus the businesses advantages increase.

This study therefor is undertaken to investigate what impact stress and stress management has on organizations and its effects on employees’ performance, to determine what causes stress, to identify the different types or dimensions of stress and how to handle or manage stress.

Questionnaires will be used the primary method of data gathering and desk research will also be used as secondary method of collecting data which will be analysed and put together for summary, recommendations and conclusion.
