The construction industry is known to create a highly stressful work environment given its unpredictability and mental/time demanding nature, which creates challenges for professionals to maintain a healthy work-life balance. This senior project aims to research and identify the key areas that foster this stress and propose a learning module for the Cal Poly Construction Management Department to implement into class curriculum. Having this learning module taught to students will raise awareness of the topic for future industry professionals and equip them with the tools to maintain a healthy equilibrium between their work demands and personal life. The learning module encompasses understanding and identifying stress within the construction industry, communication strategies and effective time management, mental and physical wellness, support networks and career changes, and lastly how to create a work-life balance plan. This learning module will provide theoretical knowledge along with practical tools and techniques, preparing students for navigation through their careers in the demanding industry of construction.
