30% of the working population are more stressed than they can bear. This is the result of the last survey in the course of the Swiss Job Stress Index 20201. For employees who feel stressed, the scales on the side of the stresses (time pressure, social stress from superiors and work colleagues, work organization problems, unclear work tasks, qualitative excessive demands) drop significantly. On the other side, the resources (room for manoeuvre, supportive superior behaviour, general appreciation, holistic tasks) cannot sufficiently offset the heavy loads. There is an imbalance between loads and resources, which sooner or later lead to health problems for those affected.
