Topic 3: Stress in the Workplace

"Work-related stress is becoming an epidemic in the workplace. Nearly twop-thirds of Australian employees say they are under extreme stress at work." (McShane & Travaglione 2005 p224). This chronic work-related stress can hinder job performance, lead to job burnout and is detrimental to an organisation's productivity and performance.

You could conduct a couple of interviews with workers who appear to experience different amounts of stress on the job e.g. fire-fighters and florists. Are there elements in common which engender work stress? Or you could interview someone suffering from work-related stress, or 'burnout'. Alternatively, you could check the perceptions of management regarding the effects of stress and its impact on productivity.

The report is to comprise a half hour interview with someone working fulltime.

Procedure

Do the relevant reading around the topic

Identify an interesting theoretical perspective or point of view

Formulate some relevant questions or hypotheses

Conduct at least one half hour interview with a relevant person, focusing on the issues of interest.

This interview is to be confidential and anonymous and the name of the interviewee is to be changed when a summary is presented in the appendix of the report and referred to in the body of the report. Make sure the interviewee signs the permission form (at the end of this page).

Present the results and discussion in an integrated and coherent fashion following the Guidelines to Writing a Report

Discuss the limitations of the study (and case studies in general), come to some conclusions and point the way for future research.

IMPORTANT:

Remember, it is impossible to generalize from a case study. Consequently, although a single case study can provide evidence in support of a theory, it cannot confirm the theory. On the other hand, it can be a useful tool for disconfirming theories. If our observations and results do not support a particular theoretical position, think about some possible reasons for the discrepancy.

Do your reading FIRST. You cannot know what questions to ask your subject(s) until you have decided what it is, exactly, that you want to know.

Select some kind of theoretical approach or perspective to guide your enquiry and to keep you focused. Don't try to cover too many theories or approaches – keep it simple and well structured.

Draw up an interview schedule (list of questions you want to ask) and include in the appendix. Be prepared to go beyond your listed questions if your subject has plenty to say, but use your list to remind you of those essential questions which you'll need to ask if your report is to make sense.

To encourage your subject to talk freely, you should be sure to ask open-ended questions (without being too vague). For example, don't ask questions like 'Is is the boredom that gets you down?" but rather 'What is the most stressful aspect of your job". Remember your goal is to explore your subject's experiences and perceptions, not to confirm your hunches or hypotheses.
