Gallup’s State of the Global Workplace 2022 Report, which analyzes how employees experienced and felt about work and life in the past year, found that employee engagement and wellbeing are at a low while stress is at an all-time high.
The report, which features findings from the largest study of the employee experience, shows that the majority of employees around the world are completely burnt out, disengaged from their work and experiencing a low quality of life.
Employee Stress at an All-Time High
According to Gallup’s report, 44% of employees feel stressed and 40% feel worried on a daily basis. Twenty-one percent of employees even feel anger during their workday, while 23% feel sadness. Feelings of stress, worry, anger and sadness have numerically declined since 2021, but they are still above pre-pandemic levels.
