It is disheartening to note that more than one-third of people confess to work being the most stressful part of their lives. To handle this stress, at least 60% of the working lot hit the bottle soon after they get back from work. Some 14% drink even during the day to cope.

A survey of more than 2000 adults has shown that work associated mental problems are on the high and organizations must do something to bring some relief to employees. Companies that offered flexible working hours and generous annual leave helped in reducing such incidences of emotional problems among employees.

Employees felt at a loss handling their stress as they cannot turn to their bosses for support, so some of them resort to sleeping pills, antidepressants, smoking and drinking. Some of them just call and report sick to take a break. Some employees just call it quits with their job.
