This study set out to test whether stressful and demanding jobs lead to more employee related issues if left unanswered by the management. The focus of the study was to determine how highly demanding jobs can lead to increased anxiety and stress for employees. Employees then develop chronic health issues and impairments that impact their quality of life. With the help of secondary data analysis this study was able to narrow down its focus onto studying how workplace stress can impact job performance, employee burnout and health impairments. Primary data collection was done with the help of a digital survey distributed amongst 60 individuals. This study has concluded that high levels of stress in the workplace leads to better job performance, but in the long run this can lead to employee burnout and health impairments. In the long run too, much stress can cause high levels of distress in employees.
