According to a study published yesterday (March 15th) by Bupa, a large proportion of managers of such companies are endangering their physical and mental wellbeing due to the pressure they are under in the aftermath of the recession.
For instance, the survey found that 40 per cent of all SME bosses continue to work when they are ill as opposed to taking time off due to the fact there is no one to fulfil their duties if they are away.
In addition, 31 per cent said that financial issues and a lack of resources mean their business would collapse altogether if they were absent for any length of time.
This comes after a study by Ipsos for Reuters found that 27 per cent of workers globally feel their workplace is not psychologically safe and healthy at present.
