performance in organizations, to establish the measures of reducing on stress in an organization.

The study concluded that there are a number of factors leading to occupational stress in Mukwano Group of companies. The presence of difficult workers was found out to be the major cause of occupational stress in Mukwano group of companies, while low motivation and moral was the major effect of stress on employee performance in Mukwano group of companies and lastly making changes in the organization was suggested as the most effective measure of reducing on stress in Mukwano

of the organization concerning occupational stress and the ability to create report among the

respondents so as to create a conducive environment in order to get the required information and

there is also need to enhance employee remuneration to help them love the organization. It is

also important to enhance Communication skills acquired and applied during work management.

determining the signs of stress, identifying possible causes for the signs and developing possible

proposed solutions for each sign as ways of reducing on occupational stress than encouraging

labour turn over, the organization can train their workers according to the organization needs to

help them to adopt to new challenges and Management should always inform workers in case of

need for voluntary turn over rather than creating possible outcomes that can cause occupational

stress
