According to a study conducted by Regus, more than half of all office workers based in Manchester are set to be working over Christmas, with almost one-third stating this had caused "serious upset" for their friends and family.
Furthermore, 40 per cent of all professionals in this position feel going into the office is pretty much a pointless exercise as "very little" work will get done throughout this period anyway.
Greg Lunn, regional director of Regus, warned firms to be careful about how they treat their staff during the holiday season, as such figures show that "stress and burn-out are very real threats".
This comes after Legal & General found that anxiety at work is three-times as common among women as men.
