Are You Stressed because of Work? Our Solutions to You

Stress is the major leading cause of lack of productivity among employees. Some of the factors that are largely known to induce stress at work can be classified under the following points: environmental factors, job organizational factors, work place relationships, domestic situations or personality factors.  Stress is majorly the failure to cope with pressure and both the person and the management cannot overlook such symptoms when they show up. Stress management at the work place can be looked at from two ideal angles:
Every employee is prone to get stressed at the workplace once in a while but what matters most is how you respond to the stress levels. Different people have different ways of relieving or expressing stress and these may be through humor, talking to someone, relaxation techniques like hitting the gym or going for a swim or even taking some time off from what you consider stressing. These methods are deployed to deal with external stress but a good deal of stress could be avoided if employees paid more attention to their self concept and self esteem issues.
The development of self confidence helps colleagues or even the boss know your stand on

Tribalism, Nepotism and the Job Equation

“Does tribalism and nepotism play a role in the job recruitment processes?” That’s the question I asked my peers at a local barber shop as we waited in line. I was perusing through a newspaper as is the norm while waiting for my turn when I happened to bump onto an article about this. “Well?” I asked again as I tried to sway their attention to this topic, “Of course it does apply especially in government recruitment; everyone knows this and that is the way it always will be.” I wanted to sharply object to his casual way of responding to this question but was stopped by the faces of the others who by then were listening to our discussion and were in total agreement with the response. “How can you accept this injustice in such a laid-back manner considering the high levels of unemployment that the country is facing?” Is this the extent to which we’ve lost hope in our country? I thought to myself. 

The article made reference to the saga at the Kenya pipeline company where there were allegations that nepotism was at play in the way appointments were made at one of Kenya’s biggest parastatals.  According to the article, the Yatta MP Charles Kilonzo has called on parliaments committee on equal opportunity to investigate the matter. The MP even went ahead to

10 Reasons to Quit Your Current Job / Employer

The decision to look for a new job should be strategic and carefully analyzed. When you are searching for a lucrative deal with another organization the following points will help you consider if you’re ready to quit your current job.

1. Underutilization of talent: If you feel that you have an enormous talent and the organization does not give you a chance to explore your talent as it does not create room for initiative and innovativeness then it’s a high time to move on and find one that will. You might want to take up challenges that will enable you use your skills but the management does not provide them.

2. Passion for the job: doing what you like increases your efficiency and effectiveness at the work place. In most cases people who work because they have to and not because they like their job end up with high stress levels and underperform their duties. If you’re not passionate about your job look for one that you’re passionate about.
