Survey Shows Generational Differences in Work-Related Mental Health Issues
Workers of all ages face mental health challenges, yet younger generations are feeling them more frequently, according to the results of a recent survey. Researchers at the Society for Human Resource Management Foundation in March surveyed 1,000 workers. Among the Generation Z workers and millennials, 47% and 46%, respectively, reported experiencing job-related stress at least once a week over the past six months. That compared with 27% of baby boomers and those in the Silent Generation (born before 1945).
