A similar trend can also be found locally. A Malaysian Mental Health Association survey found that 63 per cent of Malaysian employees experienced stress at work (Malay Mail, 2019). In a survey by JobStreet, 58 per cent of Malaysian workers reported feeling burnt out at work (The Star, 2019). The Malaysian Employers Federation reported that absenteeism due to stress and mental health issues cost Malaysian businesses an estimated RM3 billion annually (The Edge Markets, 2021). Stress in the workplace is defined as the physical, mental, and emotional pressure caused by a person’s job or work environment. Various factors, including work overload, deadlines, lack of support from colleagues, and poor working conditions can cause workplace stress. If left unaddressed, workplace stress can have serious consequences for the employee and the organisation.
