A significant proportion of professionals are unhappy with the mental aspects of their job and are subsequently suffering from issues such as stress at work, new research has found.
According to a study conducted by Ipsos for Reuters, some 27 per cent of workers globally feel their workplace is not psychologically healthy and safe in the aftermath of the recession.
This survey involved questioning more than 14,600 employees from countries such as the UK, the US and Germany and found that problems such as anxiety, frustration and interpersonal conflict are making people feel uncomfortable at work.
Senior vice-president of Ipsos Public Affairs Alexandra Evershed commented: "Employers need to pay attention to their employees' mental health, not just their physical health."
These remarks echo those made recently by Kevin Friery, clinical director at Right Management Workplace Wellness, who said that managers do not currently take stress at work seriously enough.
