25% of employees hesitant to discuss stress and burnout at work: report


A recent report reveals that one in four employees face challenges when it comes to discussing mental health issues such as stress, burnout, anxiety, or depression in the workplace.

The study conducted by Great Place To Work India, an organization specializing in workplace assessment and recognition, surveyed over 18.5 lakh employees from more than 210 companies across 18 different industries in 2023.

Burnout emerged as a significant concern, affecting 56% of employees surveyed. Notably, the survey highlighted that one out of every four employees finds it difficult to address issues related to stress, burnout, anxiety, or depression without fear of judgment in the workplace.

Yeshasvini Ramaswamy, CEO of Great Place To Work India, emphasized the importance of employee well-being, stating, "Employee wellbeing -- a concept that went from a niche idea to a boardroom priority -- has reached a critical juncture. This year's data reveals a concerning 2-point decline in overall satisfaction, coupled with a 3-point increase in burnout experiences. It's a stark reminder that true well-being isn't a one-time initiative but a continuous journey that requires unwavering commitment."

Ramaswamy further highlighted the need for a transparent and supportive environment in workplaces, especially considering the fear of judgment that prevents many employees from speaking up about their mental health challenges.

The report also indicated that while over 80% of employees reported a positive sense of community at their workplace, those aged 25 and below reported the lowest sense of community.
