Survey of the Automotive Sector Shows that Half of Employees Have Suffered Stress

50% of the automotive sector employees reported struggling with stress at work and home issues within the last year.
Half of those who said they had suffered stress said it was down it to personal issues which reduced their performance at work according to a new survey by BEN the UK’s dedicated charity for the automotive sector.
The online poll was taken by 416 people and one of the major issues for the participants was financial security in their personal and professional lives 50% said that they had money concerns in the last year and 28% had received a pay cut or freeze.
The third largest issue was that 22% of people were worried that there was a lack of both training and developmental support.
64% of the participants said that their personal circumstances had affected their work performance and 57% of those who had work concerns believed that this had a negative impact on their personal well-being.
The survey revealed that the people suffering from these stress at work and home concerns did not want to voice their concerns and 36% said they did not try and find support for their problems.
There was an even lower number of people who had sought advice 12.5% said that they had gone to their line manager and a tiny 7% had reported their issues to their HR department.
