Stress at the workplace can lead to depression

The new findings can be used as a guide for future focus areas when stress and depression become a part of the workplace.

The study suggests that looking at the employees’ own assessment of the work environment and possible changes to the work environment has a much better preventive effect on depression than reducing the workload.

”When the employees’ sense of justice plays such a central role in minimizing the risk of depression, this is probably the area that the preventive work should focus on,” says psychologist Matias Grynderup, PhD, of the Department of Clinical Medicine at Aarhus University.

“I recommend a management style in which there is a clearly expressed wish to treat employees properly – combined with a transparent organizational structure.”
