Abstract
It is a daily task for management to design jobs, pay systems, job descriptions and other aspects of organizational functioning. But by including a profiling of employees potential workplace stress, companies could improve the daily health of employees and support a healthy and motivated organization underpinning a satisfactory company performance.

Drawing an employees stress profile would enable the manager to address the workplace stress prior to it actually happens, which would be beneficial for both the employee and the company.

The aim of the paper is to suggest a profiling scheme for potential stress based on 12 so-called stress boosters. The profiling should be viewed upon as an operational tool, which managers can use in their daily

management of both employees facing a potential risk of becoming stressed, but also to support the process of hiring new employees.
