The second annual 'Workplace Index' conducted by US-based company Staples Business Inc. found that 64 percent of respondents reported their workplace as the main contributor to their stress, while nearly half admitted that feeling overworked was motivating them to look for another job, Worcester Business Journal reported.

‘Longer hours of work and job stress is leading to burnout and forcing many employees to switch their jobs.’

The study involved 936 office workers and 1,059 business decision makers in the US.

Pointing to the importance of an office environment that is sensitive to employee needs, the researchers said that 13 percent of the employees participating in the study even took a workplace stress-related leave of absence.
