Recent research is showing that work is significantly more likely to cause stress and emotional strain than any other aspects of workers’ lives. Following work it is:

  • 46% experiencing stress relating to loved ones & family life
  • 45% relating to money & finances
  • 38% relating to health & wellbeing
  • 35% due to romantic relationships.

 But some industries are more likely to cause their workers’ stress than others. While those working in Finance are most stressed (69%), the sector is closely followed by Local and National Government (68%) and healthcare (66%). Quite possibly not surprising considering the amount of change happening and state of flux we are in as a nation.
