Three out of five millennials feel anxious or stressed all the time: study
Singapore millennials were found to be more stressed than the global average.
Almost three out of five millennials or 45% are feeling stressed or anxious all the time, according to Deloitte’s 2021 Millennial and Gen Z Survey.
This is higher than the global average of 41%.
65% said they have not spoken openly about feeling more stressed or anxious to their employers since the pandemic started.
On the other hand, 62% of those surveyed said they strongly agreed that their current employers have taken action to support their mental well-being during this time.
Approximately three out of five, or 60%, agreed that their companies are actively making plans and preparing policies to support employees with their post pandemic mental and physical health.
But 45% of millennials said that worries about their longer-term financial future have contributed the most to their feelings of anxiety or stress.
Meanwhile, Singapore Gen Z workers are less stressed, with only 40% saying they feel anxious or stressed all the time. This is lower than the global average of 46%.
