Bad management the biggest cause of stress at work

A recent survey has revealed that over half of workers (53.2%) in the UK say stress is an issue in their current workplace and nearly two thirds (61.9%) believe their employer looks down on workers who get stressed, a survey shows.

The poll of 1,200 UK workers found that the majority of employees (57.4%) believe that their manager does not offer support to help them manage stress at work.

Bad management is the biggest cause of stress at work (65.8%), followed by low morale within the workplace (38.1%), unfriendly colleagues (35.7%), heavy workloads (34.1%), long working hours (29.3%) and poor work/life balance (25.5%)
