Young workers more prone to stress than older colleagues, survey finds
Almost half of young workers are experiencing high levels of stress, according to the latest Global Benefits Attitudes Survey.
The study of 1,895 employees in the UK found that the top causes of workplace stress for Generation Y were inadequate staffing and low pay, these were the top concerns across all generations in the workforce. A lack of work/life balance was also a major concern for younger workers along with a lack of clarity on job expectations, while Baby Boomers were more worried about organisational culture and excessive change.
The report also found that 65 per cent of Generation Y are more worried about their finances than older workers, only 55 per cent of Generation X workers and 38 per cent of Baby Boomers are concerned about money.
