In Australian universities, increasing levels of job-related stress and high workloads can affect employees’ health and well-being and are likely to have direct consequences on recruiting and retaining high-quality academics, the teaching of future professionals, and the university sector’s growth in national and international markets. As theory and evidence regarding investigations of job stress in universities is incomplete in several ways, this chapter details the results of longitudinal and cross-sectional research on job stress and well-being, and reports on organizational and individual interventions to address job stress. The implications of this research are presented and several avenues for future research are highlighted. Well-being initiatives taken by both management and employees are of interest to the community as well as governments, union groups, and employers in both public and private sectors.
