Authors: Akomanin Blankson, Richard
Issue Date: 25-Jul-2014
Abstract: Stress is a universal element and persons from nearly every walk of life experience it in one way or the other. In their quest to achieve high productivity in a safe environment, employers today are critically analysing stress management issues that contribute to lower job performance of employees. The main aim of this research was to assess the impact of stress on the performance of employees of Moolman Mining Ghana Limited. The researcher employed Quantitative data analysis and descriptive study in assessing the research. Purposive non - random sampling and simple random sampling techniques were used in selecting a sample size of 100 out of which 15 were of managerial positions. Microsoft excel was used to analyse the data and from the results obtained; four types of stresses was identified namely; acute, chronic, traumatic and episodic acute stress. It was evident that most of the causes of these stresses were managerial related and few were personal related. It was also evident that there were many stress factors that the respondents endured, and the enquiry proved that stress had an effect on performance either positively or negatively. Based on the findings, it was recommended that stress management should be incorporated into Moolmans induction and orientation programmes. It was also suggested that Special stress identification and management programmes should be organise for managerial staff, front line supervisors and shift supervisors.
