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!
