The modern workplace is highly challenging and demanding. The business environment is described as VUCA; Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous. Employees seem to struggle to adapt and thrive in the VUCA business environment.
A 2001 study conducted for Capital magazine showed that 85 per cent of managers experienced stress in their professional lives, and 86 per cent of these felt that stress had increased in recent years.
Ever-higher demands on performance and results, growing time pressure, constant change, “zero defects,” and the end of lifetime employment put employees in a state of never-ending stress with severe consequences.
