The use of words such as stress-resistant and flexible are frequently used in job advertisements. Two terms often lack a broader definition or explanation, raises the question what actually is being sought. The purpose of this study is to find out what definitions are behind the choice of words. Interviews was conducted with private and public companies. During the encoding process, it turned out that the synonymous word for flexible was availability, customizable and adaptable. While the overall definition of stress is about how individuals can cope with a high workload and sudden changes. But there were also elements that emerged during the interviews which showed that the concept was deeper than that. It turned out that the relationships at work are important for how the individual experiences the situation. The final conclusion is that there are better words to describe what is requested.
