Stress hits managers younger
Burn-out and depression caused by high stress levels is becoming an increasing problem for managers at a younger age than ever, according to a new report.
The survey found that among the 1294 managers questioned who were leaving their jobs, four out of five felt much better soon after they left work.
Conversely the 948 respondents who were remaining in work, at an average age of 41 years, felt their health was continuing to deteriorate rapidly.
The enhanced levels of stress are being blamed on increasingly long working hours, mobile phones and emails, meaning they are never far away from their work.
An increasing number of manager are alos having to receive treatment for stress-related illnesses.
