UAE employees among the most stressed in the world

A new survey has found that UAE employees are among the most stressed workers in the world.

The 2021 Cigna 360 Wellbeing Survey found that 88% of UAE employees said they were stressed at work.

And that makes the UAE workforce some of the most stressed employees in the world!

Yikes!

The survey spoke to 18,000 people in 21 markets across five continents.

And that workplace stress means that workers in the UAE are more likely to try and switch jobs to lower their stress levels.

“People have consistently suffered from overwork, which has led a half of the UAE’s working population to consider leaving their jobs,” said Jerome Droesch, CEO at Cigna MEA and SEA.

Younger workers between 18 and 34 were the most willing to leave their job to find a less-stressed position. And those aged 35-59 had higher rates of job insecurity at 45%. And they also felt the financial strain with a financial wellbeing index of 57.1%.

So, in conclusion, try not to get old!
