STRESS LEVELS ARE RISING WORLDWIDE
STRESS LEVELS ARE RISING IN WORKPLACES AROUND THE WORLD…
In a recent global survey of 1,000 corporations across 15 countries, commissioned by The Regus Group it was found that the levels of workplace stress have risen over the last two years. The survey found 6 in 10 workers in significant global economies experienced increased workplace stress.
The survey found that China (86%) had the highest rise in workplace stress. While those workers in larger companies worldwide (over 1000 workers and more) were nearly twice as likely to suffer from stress. These heightened stress levels were costing world economies billions of dollars in lost productivity and health related problems. One of the most important aspects to reducing the stress levels of employees was in assisting them to develop a healthy work-life balance.
