A new report carried out by the European Survey of Enterprises on New and Emerging Risks (ESENER) has found that stress is the second most frequent reason for people taking time off work.

After injuries or pain in employees’ muscles, neck and back, work-related stress accounts for 50%-60% if all working days.

Nearly 28% of European workers reported exposure to psychosocial risks that effected their mental wellbeing.

The report also reveals that around half of lager organisations have established procedures for dealing with psychosocial risks, while 20%-30% of smaller organisations had measures in place.
