A study conducted by the Kenexa High Performance Institute has established that members of staff across all sectors in Britain are struggling with mental anxiety issues more than their counterparts in nations such as the US and Germany.
The organisation's Stress: What's the Impact for Organisations? report indicated that stress within companies across the world has grown since the onset of the global economic downturn.
Indeed, Dr Rena Rasch, research manager at Kenexa, observed: "There has been a marked increase in workplace stress in every country, industry and job type, to the extent that it is now higher than at any time in the last four years."
Recently, psychologist Richard Balding headed up a study which urged managers to encourage their workers to switch off at the end of their shift to prevent them suffering from anxiety.
