Poll: 3 / 5 Canadians experienced more workplace related stress than in 2022

A recent poll shows that three in five Canadian workers are experiencing more workplace-related stress this year than last.

Global recruitment firm Robert Walters, which polled more than 2,500 employees, said the main stressors identified include hefty workloads, lack of job stability, and feeling unsupported by employers.

The poll revealed that 60% of respondents reported workplace-related stress, with 34% experiencing it “very often,” while 10% had no recurring stress this year.

To mitigate workplace stress, Robert Walters’ Managing Director, Martin Fox, suggests fostering a supportive and open workplace culture. Managers should receive proper training on soft skills to lead with empathy and effectively communicate with employees facing difficulties.
