According to research conducted by company, “Qualtrics”, nearly half of British workers are said to be feeling overwhelmed by increasing workloads. The 47% figure was accompanied by a further 85% of employees also saying that work is causing them a considerate amount of stress. The quarterly survey involved over 4,000 employees, highlights the impact of big workloads on modern day workers.
The report also touched on how businesses could be doing more to ensure that employees are feeling better mentally supported to ensure psychological well-being of staff. Worryingly, more than half of the surveyed staff (52%), felt that their employers were not doing enough to ensure that they didn’t feel overwhelmed with workloads, and could use extra assistance on how to manage workload.
