Audit professionals stressed out

Stress is the biggest health concern for auditors, according to new research

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.
