Designers say stress levels are on the up

More than 72 per cent of designers say that their stress levels at work have risen over the past year.

The poll, details of which are on www.designweek.co.uk, shows that 72.1 per cent of respondents say that their stress levels have risen over the past year, while 18 per cent say they have declined, and 9.8 per cent say they have stayed the same.

Recent research by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development shows that more than a quarter of UK workers describe their mental health as moderate or poor, while 90 per cent of those suffering from poor mental health say that it affects their performance at work.

The CIPD research also showed that more than half of employees with poor mental health had taken time off as a result.
