The experience of stress in the workplace is becoming an increasing concern for employees and organizations alike, as research indicates that consistent exposure to stress is associated with negative physical and psychological reactions such as insomnia, depression and high blood pressure. This study seeks to evaluate the effects of social support on the stress-strain relationship and factors that may impact the effectiveness of social support in reducing the workplace strain.
