A new study finds that employee stress can jump from one company to a worker's home, and from there to another organization.

Hello Mark. I have personally noticed two other factors that can also hurt your business severely. And that is employee-fatigue (pushing them too hard) as well as employee morale. The latter of course being very important for success.

Hi Mark.

We all saw what happened to our errant friend, George Costanza - he started out whiny (sort of a short, bald, chubby, bespectacled Woody Allen), then "blossomed" into a full-on rage-a-holic. Rage-a-holic George was hilarious as an exaggeration on TV, because we weren't working next to him for 8-10 hours a day. Built-up stress (and great writing) caused the rage.

I think project management/organization is one way to reduce employee stress levels in small businesses. In many instances, small businesses are born from an entrepreneurial or visionary idea. While wearing many hats is required to successfully navigate the start-up phase, the same management approach can create unnecessary stress as the business grows and requires a more structured approach to thrive.

In my experience, some small business owners can struggle with this transition and organizational chaos ensues, making office life more difficult. The good news is that - as the article references - small organizations can quickly change, if management is able to recognize the problem.
