Who Suffers from Work-Related Stress?
One in five workers in Britain report feeling extremely stressed at work, according to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), which estimates that 10.5 million working days are lost each year to depression, anxiety and work-related stress.
Some pressure at work can be motivating, but when it becomes excessive it can eventually lead to work-related stress. Stress is “the adverse reaction people have to excessive pressures or other demands placed on them”
Typical causes of work-related stress include poor communication, a bad working environment and skills not matching those that are needed for the job. Stress can also be triggered by events away from work, such as bereavement, money worries and illness.
