Work Place Stress
An organization cannot stand on its own as it works only due to the presence of its employees who works into it. All of us who live in the democracy would want to believe that the organization in which we work tend to provide us with equality, respect and an impartial environment.

However it is not the case with all as behavior of one employee tends to be different from the other. Hence it can be said that the overall behavior of an organization totally depends on the mannerisms of the workers who work in it. The workplace of the organization has to have a decorum which every employee should maintain. There are differences in the behavior towards women and minorities and this is treated as normal. However in an organization, domination of gender is given a responsive look. On a broader view organizational behavior has hardly done anything to address these serious issues instead it has been presented as a model of evaluation.
