Stress and Productivity

I got curious concerning the correlations job (dis)satisfaction (emotion) has with stress (emotion) and with job performance (objective criteria). The opposite of stress is PWB (psychological well-being) which correlates pretty much with job satisfaction, a processor of PWB.

The most part of job & life dissatisfaction questionnaires have dimensions built for each area of life. The most difficult part is to relate the lack of productivity with job dissatisfaction, which is the real HR metrics problem. Stress is easy to measure not only as a perception but as a fact, through psychophysiology and personal health indicators.

At the same time, the correlation between job satisfaction and individual performance is considered to be minor, but the correlation between job dissatisfaction and organizational performance, through personnel fluctuation.

I got this information from Dragoş Iliescu from Test Central, as an answer to some questions I have put to him last year.
