CIPD warns managers ignoring stress at work

Managers who ignore the issue of stress at work within their organisation are risking the possibility of losing their best members of staff, new research has indicated.

 

 

According to a study conducted by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development's (CIPD) quarterly Employee Outlook survey, professionals are more likely to be on the lookout for a new job if they feel anxiety is common in their workplace.

 

For instance, figures collated by the body showed that those who face "excessive pressure" on a daily basis are nearly twice as likely - 39 per cent - to be seeking pastures new than people who struggle with such problems once or twice a month.

 

Claire McCartney, resourcing and talent adviser at the CIPD, commented that if anyone feels there is a lack of transparency in the higher echelons of their firm, they are likely to experience "disenchantment".

 

This comes after research by Aviva revealed that 23 per cent of all Britons are currently struggling with stress at work.
