New survey finds a third of auditors rate stress as biggest impact on health

Stress is the biggest health concern for auditors, according to new research
by www.careersinaudit.com

It was named as the biggest health risk by 32% of auditors, followed by low
energy (26%), significant weight gain/loss (13%) and aggressiveness (14%).

Three quarters of respondents thought that their career progression would be
hindered if they gave greater priority to personal interests and families – even
though 90% of respondents accepted that a poor
work/life balance
reduces the quality of their work.

The research revealed that 43% of accountants are working 50 hours a week or
more, with 17% of accountants working over 60 hours.
