Stress is still a big factor in the workplace, as the latest poll finds 92 per cent of office workers suffer from anxiety.
Onrec.com reports that the survey by Badenoch & Clark shows that a third of these 92 per cent are often stressed and one in ten people are always stressed.
Managing Director of the firm Neil Wilson comments that the condition will adversely affect employers and employers.
"Not only does stress affect a persons health, it also impacts their productivity and attitude at work," he notes.
He adds that bosses must work with their staff to address the issue.
Furthermore, companies that do not take this problem seriously will lose their competitive edge in the long run, he states.
ClickAJob chief executive Yngve Traberg agrees, advising managers to think beyond the usual dimension of employee cost and salaries.
"Management methods are shifting," he says. "One-on-one respect is displacing top-down pressure in favour of a more involving and inspirational work environment where the key issues get solved together."
"By including staff in decision making," he continues, "employees find they want to work instead of having to - so that many of their stress problems just melt away."
According to the poll, human resources managers are most likely to suffer from stress, with the main cause of worry being a heavy workload.
