Demanding jobs increasing stress among workers

Sydney, Oct 02 : A greater number of employees are suffering from high levels of stress, depression and poor sleep patterns because of work burden at their offices, a new survey has revealed.


The poll conducted by Australian organisation, beyondblue, found that more than half of those surveyed were unhappy with their work hours, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

The report 'Hard To Get a Break?' claimed that rhetoric around flexible workplaces and the advantages of new technology often did not match reality.

The survey of 1400 people, out of which 800 were in paid work, also found that while many feel overworked, the problem of "underwork" is also pervasive.

The report showed that about 28 per cent of people are working more hours than they want to, while 24 per cent want to work more hours.
