The stressors-performance relationship in accounting and auditing firms: Is there eustress out there?

Abstract

To identify the stressors that improve performance in accounting firms, we used structural equation modeling toanalyze 293 questionnaire responses from French certified public accountants (CPAs) and trainee CPAs. Thefindings clarify the rare studies on the stressors–motivation relationship, and the mechanism by which perceivedenvironmental uncertainty affects performance. We also show that feedback, if perceived as fair, increasesperformance through motivation and stress reduction. This study thus contributes to the scarce evidence on thelink between justice and stress and highlights the unique characteristics of the Big Four accounting firms.
