2017 Stress Survey

This revealed that 94% of people experience work-related stress but less than a third feel able to speak up about it. 

These findings were a part of a report released by the International Stress Management AssociationUK (ISMA) to mark the 19th International Stress Awareness Day on 1st November 2017. The report, based on a nationwide stress survey ISMA carried out during October, showed the devastating effects that work-related stress is having on the lives of British people.

The survey showed that, despite the fact that 94% of people experience work-related stress, only 32% feel they can speak to their line manager or HR department about it. The survey also revealed that work-related issues contribute more to people’s stress levels than difficulties regarding relationships, health and finances combined.

The ISMA survey, based on contributions by more than 350 participants, was released at the London Stress Fair hosted by ISMA and Virgin Active taking place on 1st November 2017. The Fair was the first of its kind, and one of many events being held to mark International Stress Awareness Day.
