Stressed Employees?

How stressed are your employes?  According to a recent Gallup poll there is a good chance your employees are feeling very stressed out.

Forty-percent of respondents to the poll feel their job is extremely stressful and a quarter of respondents said work is the largest source of stress in their lives.  Meanwhile a staggering 66% said that stress from work has caused health problems.

Women may be more stressed than men however.  86% of moms that work said they are overly stressed, while seventy-four percent of working dads said the same.

The top sources of work stress reported by respondents were: low pay (14%), commuting (11%), unreasonably workload (9%), and fear of being fire (9%).

Stressed workers are more likely to be underproductive, tired, sick and have bad attitudes.  Make sure your employees aren’t in the 40% of workers that say their job is extremely stressful!
