The Prodigy's Blog "Stressful Work Environments"

April 14, 2016

We all know that stress can play a major factor in the workplace. If you’re anything like me, you prefer a stress free work place. But as it turns out, we may be in the minority. A new survey says that 8% of people do not want a stressful work environment while everyone else enjoys some stress at work. I don't know who thought it would be a good idea to show BJ this survey, but curse them!

 

I don't know where this survey found these people but they never had to work with BJ. All it takes is one little thing to go wrong; let’s say someone forgot BJ's coffee. The next thing you know, you’re behind closed doors getting a 10 minute speech about efficiency and how one cup of coffee can lead to the whole office being stressed out, the snowball effect. Somehow, despite creating all this stress, BJ tends to look pretty relaxed; a kind of controlled chaos.

 

Me on the other hand, I love things to be calm and casual. Now BJ walks around the office telling people to be thankful for the amazing work environment we have. I don't think it's helping my stress levels, but I sure don't forget BJ's coffee anymore. 

 

What about you, do you prefer stress at work, or do you like things to be stress free?​
