It’s probably no surprise to hear workplace anxiety can affect job performance. But as it turns out, relationships with co-workers and supervisors can help combat this anxiety, according to a study.

“The quality of the relationships that we foster in the workplace is going to help us deal with our workplace problems, not only our anxiety but all kinds of workplace problems, and will lead to better outcomes for people,” said John Trougakos, associate professor of management at the University of Toronto-Scarborough and Rotman School of Management, and co-author of the study.
