Journal of Economics and Behavioral Studies, 2017, vol. 9, issue 2, 22-32

Abstract: This study was motivated by Zimbabwe’s deteriorating economic experience, which has resulted in high unemployment rates, low productivity, high cost of doing business, increased labour disputes, and stress manifestation amongst the working population. The results of the study showed that change factors, demands or pressure factors, lack of support and participation at work by supervisors and other staff members, and work role were to a greater extent the most stressful factors. The perennial economic crisis in the country, high degree of uncertainty due to restructurings and redundancies, and work changes without consultations, had a positive impact on employee’s productivity. The regression results concluded that poor work relationships, lack of support at work, and poor planning had negatively affected productivity.
