Control Issues at Work

Control (lack of) of one’s job is a cause of work related stress

 

Control within the management standards is defined as:

‘How much say the person has in the way they do their work’.

The standard is that:

Employees indicate that they are able to have a say about the way they do their work and that the appropriate systems are in place locally to respond to any individual concerns.

Meeting the Standards Means That:

  • Where possible, employees have control over their pace of work
  • Employees are encouraged to use their skills and initiative to do their work
  • Where possible, employees are encouraged to develop new skills to help them undertake new and challenging pieces of work
  • The organisation encourages employees to develop their skills
  • Employees have a say over when breaks can be taken
  • Employees are consulted over their work patterns

When the employees ability to have any influence over how their job is performed is minimal, and they are essentially simply required to ‘do as they are told’, then there is an increased chance that work related stress may occur due to the task being regarded as menial.
