Employee workload increasing, study shows
A new study has revealed that workloads have increased for many employees as a result of the current economic downturn.

Research conducted by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) discovered that two-thirds of employers have cut spending on overtime, travel and fringe benefits.

As a result, many have to cope with increased levels of stress among workers.

However, it was also revealed that due to the recession, many bosses say they are now communicating more regularly with their employees.

Gerwyn Davies of the CIPD said: "Individual workloads and stress levels look set to rise during the course of the year, placing a greater onus on managers and leaders to communicate regularly and check that workloads do not become unmanageable."

Last month, psychologist Mo Shapiro claimed that many employees find it difficult to switch off from work, even when they should be relaxing on holiday.
