Workplace Anxiety

Ask the Raffles Medical Group Experts


Is workplace anxiety aggravated by one’s personality, or could the workplace be “at fault”?


Workplace anxiety can be caused by a combination of factors. For instance, if you have poor coping skills, perhaps a fast-paced working environment is not suitable for you. Your character and mental makeup are other factors. Furthermore, it is important to be able to see from your employer’s viewpoint. Supervisors and family should observe and see if the anxiety is out of proportion to the stress. If so, it might be a good idea to seek help.
