A recent survey of almost 400 Australian workers asked: what are the most effective avenues through which one can combat harmful workplace stress?
84% said exercising more
78% said taking breaks during the day
63% said speaking to a manager or colleague
60% said taking days off work
50% said decreasing work hours
50% speaking to a GP
32% said looking for a new job
27% said speaking to human resources
With only 27% of employees indicating that speaking to HR would aid in combating stress HR departments may wish to consider how they can further create a culture that encourages more supportive conversation.
