School of Economics and Management, Beihang University, Beijing 100191, China
This paper aims to explore the impacts of stress on employees’ job performance with a specific focus on Hawasa Industrial Park in Ethiopia. Data was collected through key interviews, household survey and field observation. For the survey, 394 randomly selected respondents were interviewed. The results indicate that the dependent variable (job performance) related positively with education (EDU), working experience (WEX) and age (Age). The relation between gender and job performance is negative but insignificant since the value of betta coefficient is greater than 0.05. Based on this result, working experience showing a higher value (r= .438, p<.01) followed by education (r= .114, p<.05) and age (r= .032, p<.05). We identified that workload (18%), conflict at work (29%), role ambiguity (20%) and resource inadequacy (33%) are reported as the major causes of stress in the organization. Hence, this study suggests awareness creation campaigns for all the working staffs including the management are necessary to at least reduce stress and low performance of organization.
