PEOPLE UNDER THE age of 30 are far more likely to experience work-related stress than their parents’ generation, according to the results of new survey.

More than half of respondents (55 per cent) said that work-related stress was a significant factor in their lives, according to the survey commissioned the manufacturers of Multibionta. Some 51 per cent cited financial problems as a reason for stress, while almost a third admitted that they had relationship worries.

However, those aged under 30 were also more likely to call in sick to work – usually for reasons like feeling tired or run down – while 85 per cent of the over-55s said they would not call in sick unless they were bedridden.

What do you think : do younger workers have reason to feel more stressed than their parents’ generation?


Poll Results:

Yes, contemporary work environments are generally more stressful (617)
No, the same level of workplace stress exists now as did then (182)
