We all talk about stress and “being stressed out” quite loosely and frequently! And we know that stress can be a positive force. However, we’d like to understand your perceptions about unhealthy stress in the workplace.

By unhealthy stress, we mean stress that impacts negatively on the people in the business, for example leading to poor quality of work, poor decision making, conflict between colleagues or high staff turnover.
