It sounds counter-intuitive, but a little workplace stress can actually be a good thing. Research from the University of California Berkeley suggests that significant but brief stressful events causes stem cells in the brains of rats to create new cells. Two weeks after being put under stress, when these new cells had matured, the rats’ alertness, learning, and memory had improved.

Acute stress can actually help to improve performance among employees as well. During short, stressful periods, employees work harder to meet deadlines, launch projects and systems, and solve problems.
