I/O Psych Project Stress and Worker Wellbeing

This student project on stress and worker wellbeing shows an office environment where two employees are in cubes facing one another.


They are both on the phone, receiving paperwork from co-workers, and have cluttered work spaces. They seem a bit flustered and disorganized. The worker in a blue button-up shirt seems very stressed as he receives more and more work.

He receives a memo about a stress reduction workshop and ignores it. He and the worker next to him (wearing a white button-up shirt) bump into one another on their way to get coffee.

He is knocked unconscious and dreams about his stressful environment. What are sources of stress (inside and outside of the workplace)? What advice might you offer the stressed employee (that the counselor did not) to alleviate his anxiety?
