A growing number of professionals are struggling with mental health issues such as stress at work, new research has found.
According to a study published yesterday (December 12th) by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), 20 per cent of all employees are affected by this type of condition.
Following on from the recession, many workplaces have become more stressful environments due to the ongoing threat of job losses and pay reductions and this, the Sick on the Job? Myths and Realities about Mental Health at Work report indicated, is causing sickness absence to increase.
In addition, some 75 per cent of all those people battling such problems believe their condition is negatively affecting their productivity.
Therefore, the OECD concluded that it is in the interest of managers to be more proactive in their attempts to tackle stress at work.
Recently, David Liddle of the TCM Group indicated that mental anxiety among employees can become more pronounced in December.
