According to the American Psychological Association, more than 2/3 of Americans say work is a major source of stress in their lives. Both employers and employees need to discover what is triggering this stress and work to find a solution. However, research from Towers Watson reveals that employers and employees have completely different ideas about their top stress triggers. Here are the top 3:
#1 Employers – Lack of work-life balance.
#1 Employees – Inadequate staffing.
#2 Employers – Inadequate staffing.
#2 Employees – Low pay or low increases in pay.
#3 Employers – Technology that allows them to be accessible during non-working hours.
#3 Employees – Unclear or conflicting job expectations.
