Customer interactions constitute a pivotal aspect of service professionals' job satisfaction. However, not all interactions are congenial and straightforward. From time to time, service employees are tasked with managing discontent, anger, or frustration from customers, necessitating the undertaking of emotional labor. In our ongoing study, we analyze the impact of such emotional labor on task execution and physiological stress markers.

In this current study, we want to find out which demands at one's job are particularily stressful. In partiular, we look at the tasks we are supposed to do and tasks we are not given, for whatever reason. If you are currently employed, we would very much appreciate your participation in our study.
More and more employees feel obliged to be available for work even in their free time. Incoming emails or online messages are often answered in extremely short periods of time, making it difficult to successfully detach from work.

Then take part in our study and share your experiences with us.
