New study says employees are too stressed to be effective

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The struggling economy is taking a new toll on workers.

Not only are workers stressed out from job uncertainties and stagnant pay, but the stress has lasted so long, that many are now burned out too.

A new survey from Chicago based ComPsych found that the stress is so bad that now workers are not concerned about performance, they're main priority is just showing up.

Other findings report that 63% of people say they have high levels of stress at work with extreme fatigue and feeling out of control, 39% cite their workload as the top cause of stress, ad almost half cite stress and personal relationship issues as the most common reason for calling in sick to work.
