Work sucks. There. I said it. We don’t need studies to prove it. We feel it. A lot lately. The US Government wanted to know why we feel this way. Why have so many people quit their jobs? Why are so few going back to work?
Our country’s #1 doctor, the Surgeon General, went out for some answers. The survey facts are pretty intense! You are not alone.
- 84% said that something at their work caused at least 1 mental health issue.
Think this is just about workers? Think again. Executives are feeling the same way. How to help fix a work culture?
Remove the stigma. Eliminate the fear and shame of admitting feeling too much work pressure. Leaders can help by starting the conversation with their own experiences – then IMPLEMENT on what they are doing to improve everyone’s daily work life.
In short- get everyone talking and then do something about it. What’s happening for you at work? Made a job change lately. Has it helped? Or, has your current job gotten any better?
Does your work suck? There is good news. About ½ of us think their work culture has improved. At work, the glass is ½ full.
