Stress at workplace is a growing concern in organisations which needs to be addressed. Employees face conditions of excessive pressure, heavy workload, job insecurity, low levels of job satisfaction, internal conflicts and lack of autonomy. Previous studies show that workplace stress has detrimental effect on the health and wellbeing of employees, as well as a negative impact on organisations results. However, employees first need to recognize the symptoms that indicate they are feeling stressed out, and employers should be aware of the consequences that stress has on their employees' health, well-being as well as on overall growth of organization. This paper aims to analyse the factors related to workplace stress among nurses in public and private hospitals and also its impact on psychological well-being of nursing staff. The influence of working hours or shift working on work related stress is also studied.
