The past two years have wreaked Americans’ mental health. The COVID-19 pandemic, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, school shootings, the Buffalo supermarket massacre, the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, historic inflation, the list goes on and on. And now we’re on the precipice of another recession. It’s all weighing on people’s minds, and that’s on top of the struggles they face at work. More than two-thirds (67%) of workers say they experience stress at work at least once a week, up from 62% pre-pandemic, according to recent data from ADP Research Institute. In fact, 15% of workers feel stressed every day. Key sources of stress include length of the working day (28%), problems with technology (26%) and concerns over job security (25%).
