Objective: To describe the role of organizational culture in the etiology of workplace stress through the framework of the Culture-Work-Health model. Methods: A review of the business and health literature related to organizational culture was conducted and applied to the model. Results: Culture is an important component of work stress and may be a key to creating effective organizational stress interventions. Conclusion: Work stress is as much a managerial and business concern as a health concern when it is framed in a cultural argument, and the Culture-Work-Health model provides a theoretical basis for new directions in ameliorating work stress.
