Acknowledges that the subject of occupational stress has become a major workplace issue. Suggests that employers may expect training and development specialists to play an increasingly prominent role in tackling stress within the workplace. Identifies a general lack of a consensus about the nature and causes of stress. Illustrates this point by investigating perceptions of occupational stress, as outlined in information dissemination by trade unions and employers’ organisations. Uses core HR activities to provide examples of how different perspectives of occupational stress can be identified. Highlights that training and development specialists can play an important role in ensuring that a balanced and eclectic approach to occupational stress is adopted in the workplace.
