The problem of stress influence on the employee’s performance is still relevant due to modern work conditions in Russian organizations. An assessment situation may be a special type of stressor to which employees are often not ready. Stress factors in the majority adversely affect performance by reducing the creativity level. At the same time there should be pointed out the motivating power that eustress may have on the personal creativity. This paper examines the hypothesis that eustress increases personal creativity in a case of the preceding positive affective stimulus. 300 subjects (189 male and 111 female, ages 24 to 67) have participated in our research. Each subject is offered to take J. Gilfords’ and «Google»’s company creativity test. Depending on the type of the experimental group subjects were given a stress or (and) affective influence. The results showed an ambiguous eustress effect on the personal creativity. Parallel positive influence should be the same intensity as the stressor in order to reduce its negative impact on the organism. In addition, the stressors type affects employee’s creativity too. Restriction of personal zone leads to increased creativity in the case of the preceding positive affective influence, and negative comments and time limit are too strong stressors and do not increase creativity level. The results of our research can be taken as principles of psychological trainings and help to improve quality of work in organizations.
