Employees in the UK amongst the most stressed in Europe

A new report from the website www.totaljobs.com revealed that employees in the UK suffer more stress than their counterparts in Europe.

In the report, 13% of UK staff reported feeling no stress and consider themselves to be ‘on top of their work’.  The figure does not compare favourably to the European average of 42%.

The least stressed countries in Europe include France and Holland – 64% of workers report that they felt no stress at work and had no problems handling their workloads.

The levels of stress over Britain as a whole are increasing – over 24% of employees say that they felt more stressed at work than this time last year.
