Abstract

This paper looked to determine the relationship between employees’ perception of stress and workplace performance. Stress was categorized into two categories: threat and challenge. A threat response was triggered when there were not sufficient resources to address demands and a challenge response was triggered when there were sufficient resources to meet the demands of the stressor. It was hypothesized that stress when perceived as threat would result in lower work productivity and stress when perceived as challenge would result in higher work productivity in employees. A meta-analysis was conducted in order to determine whether perceptions of stress affected workplace performance and found that the hypothesis was supported. Future research is needed to study the direct relationship between perception of stress and employee work productivity as, to my knowledge, there are none that exist currently.
