What are the top three stressors of Singapore workers?

Over 73% of workers experience stress at least once a week at work.

Increased responsibility as part of the pandemic (45%) is the top source of stress for Singapore employees, the ADP® Research Institute’s People at Work 2022: A Global Workforce View has found.

“During the pandemic, workers who faced an increase in job responsibilities often found it coinciding with the sudden shift to hybrid or remote work. Past studies have shown that remote workers worked more hours at home than they did when working fully from the office,” ADP said.

 At the same time, workers may not be able to readily access support, be it from their colleagues or superiors, while working at home. These two reasons could explain why workers experience stress related to increased responsibilities during the pandemic,” it added.

Also amongst the top stressors of workers are job security (35%) and the length of their workday (30%). Employees above the age of 55 are more worried about job security than other age groups (42% vs 35%).

“The uncertainties of the pandemic, and the shift to hybrid work, can also explain why older workers are worried about job security. The rapid adaptation of solutions like video conferences, digital platforms, and automation may exacerbate fears of irrelevancy amidst an uncertain future,” ADP said.
