Nearly three in five Canadians will experience more work-related stress in 2023 than last year. What sets them apart most are high workloads and a lack of stability.

Many also said they suffered from a lack of support from their employers.
Global staffing firm Robert Walters surveyed more than 2,500 Canadian employees about their working conditions in June.
According to the results, 60% of respondents confirmed that they suffer from stress related to their job. Of these, more than a third of employees say that “this happens really often”. In contrast, 10% of participants say they do not suffer from work-related stress.
Martin Fox, general manager of Robert Walters’ Canadian subsidiary, said employers have spent an average of $400 to $600 per employee on welfare initiatives since the pandemic began in March 2020.
“There’s a bit of a dichotomy between employers who say they’re doing enough and employees who say they’re not,” Fox told CTV News. In general, it’s the same percentage of Canadians (62%) who approve of the director’s comments.
According to Fox, we should look at the situation from both sides of the coin.
“I think that even during stressful times, employees need to be able to cope with themselves and communicate their concerns or concerns to their managers,” he explained. However, the director states that managers should be trained to better respond to the concerns of their employees.
