  • 25% view their jobs as the number-one stressor in their lives.
  • 75% of employees believe that workers have more on-the-job stress than a generation ago.
  • 29% of workers feel quite a bit or extremely stressed at work.
  • 26% of workers say they are "often or very often burned out or stressed by their work."
