parcel of living in contemporary society in almost all human endeavour. Human beings do unavoidably go through some
element of stress. As a result of wants
of things through pressure or urgency by trying to engage in complex and
Stress occupied the prominent position in the
psychological and economic life of people, therefore, it is seen as a disrupted
of human resources management as factor that cannot be discouraged or rather
The researchers considered the congestive
role and impact this stress has generated to employees (modern managers) its
renders in terms of contract the employers interest are merely focused in terms
of contract, the employer.
Interest are merely focused on how to
maximize profit through increase in volume at sales, reduce costs of labour and
through other pleasures to reduce cost as to achieve the organizational goal.
However, the failure or ignorance of this
would be for employer to check the emotions and condition of service, which
creates more problem tan expected who are in the lab it of paying for salaries
but fails to realize that some managers are overused as a result or work bad
while some are raised by frustration in trying to satisfy one duty or the other
and this frustration are most manifested in their mood as anxiety, anger,
objected, dehumanization and defloration.
These ill feeling gives a longer ray to cause trouble (stress) to most
people on this note, I emphasis that stress management is very important in
checking this ugly trend.

in Hallmark Bank

managers are overused with workload, and thereby easily get tried, and
frustration may come in.
