This article presents the results of an exploratory study aiming to understand potential links between the use of a control over results' tool, more precisely an individual evaluation systems, and occupational stress. This research exposes that control systems' strengthening and empowerment are opposite trends which create tension zones responsible of evaluation systems' dysfunctions. That's why employees can't validate evaluations' criteria and are, as a result, stressed. By showing links between occupational stress and control over results, this article add others binding factors to this mode of control.
