The introduction of stress management programmes into an organization is potentially complex, and requires careful planning which takes into account possible barriers to dealing with stress. The importance of employee attitudes are discussed, based on the results of a questionnaire survey of 231 employees of a social services department. The importance of identifying the various needs of individual employees and different occupational groups, in addition to the needs of the organization is discussed in the context of designing effective stress management programmes.
