It may also cause legal issues, as employees under pressure are more likely to abuse or become violent with colleagues. A stressed working environment may also result in bad reviews on TripAdvisor, as stressed hotel employees are less likely to be friendly and welcoming towards guests.
Studies have shown hotel employees experience stress 40-62% of their working days, higher than average employees in all industries, who reported feeling stressed 25%-44% of their days. Seven-in-ten workers (68%) report feeling stressed at work at least weekly, whereas less than one-in-ten (8%) report ever doing so.
Sixty percent of employees who feel they are not getting the proper work-life balance are worried that they are not getting enough time to care for themselves, when it comes to health, eating, and exercising, according to a survey conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of Purchasing Power.
A study of over 36,200 IT professionals in 33 counties conducted by Yerbo, a mental wellness platform, found that two out of five workers are at a higher risk for burnout, driven by longer hours, higher-demand workloads, and conflicts over work-life balance. Interestingly, this research project found negative physical health symptoms related to stress caused by interpersonal issues, that is, employee and coworker stressors, not technical issues, that is, overwork, although both human issues and technical issues were commonly reported by this sample of hospitality workers. Prior studies conducted outside of the hotel industry found that stress has detrimental effects on employees performance, work efficiency, and customer service, as well as leading to increased hostility, disengagement, costly turnover, and healthcare costs. No matter what type of job one does, the reality is that workplace stress is harmful for employers and employees alike.
In any case, if work-related stress becomes chronic and overwhelming, it has deleterious effects on your mental, physical, and emotional wellbeing. Stress has physical consequences, and many job stresses cause employees to get sick. Studies have shown that stressed work environments are actually associated with increased absences, tardiness, and workers intent on quitting–all negative impacts to the bottom line.
According to NIOSHs perspective, exposure to stressful work conditions, called occupational stressors, may directly impact workers safety and health. Lack of workplace safety protections, coupled with lack of employer support of workers, has translated to increased levels of stress in all industries and at all pay rates. Low-wage workers are among the most likely to report that employers have insufficient safety practices, which helps to explain why so many low-wage workers report feeling unsafe on the job. The problem of stress is greatest among low-wage workers.
Discrimination may play a part as well, the report notes, that women workers in the computer science field are under greater pressure to perform, and have to do a lot more work to be successful, in an industry that is predominantly dominated by men. Salaried workers might face longer hours in order to do the work, with no benefit of overtime, while hourly workers may have to work more in order to do the same work in the same time frame.
Among people earning less than $15 an hour, 62% reported work has increased at their jobs. Hotel employees who reported comparatively greater interpersonal strain on the job were substantially less satisfied with their jobs, and were substantially more likely to have considered leaving the work force in order to seek alternate employment.
If hotel managers are going to be working these hours long-term, hotel executives need to look into ways to mitigate these employees stresses, not the hours. Specifically, if hotels offer strong support systems that help workers alleviate pressure, diffuse negative emotions at work, and adapt to the organization, employees are more likely to display better work and higher loyalty, thus decreasing turnover. Hotels are advised to encourage employees and their supervisors and colleagues to communicate about stress and negative emotions, share job skills and suggestions, provide psychological counseling for stress relief.
Hoteliers that strive to remove stressful situations, either through the implementation of technology or the encouragement of healthy stress management, may experience higher performance and efficiency–and happier employees and guests. Employers can assist workers in maintaining a balanced life and working schedules by creating policies, procedures, actions, and expectations that make it easier for employees to live a more balanced life. Work-life balance allows employees to feel like they are paying attention to all important aspects of their lives.
Taking vacations reduces stress, helps prevent burnout, and fosters work-life balance, by providing more time for spending time with family, significant others, and close friends. Employees who take a majority or all vacation each year are performing at higher levels, are more productive, and are happier at their jobs compared with those who do not, according to the SHRMs Vacation Impact on the Workplace Report. Taking vacation can leave employees feeling both more productive and happier upon returning to work, resulting in higher retention rates, which can save the company thousands of dollars.
Random shift changes, telework scheduling, and so much more all add up to a lot of stress, as workers are in constant limbo as far as the work-life balance is concerned. Many today have experienced years of constant stress, going straight from high-stress school and college years to the stresses of the workplace, where longer hours and a minimum of work-life balance may be seen as characteristics of the committed worker. We have already established that work causes stress, with studies showing people feel more job-related stress than economic stress or stress over personal health, and people are experiencing more work-related stress today than the generation before. While an ongoing stress condition has become a new normal for many working adults, the physical and psychological toll is harming their chances for success, argue respected workplace and wellness experts Annie McKee and Emma Seppala.
