Report: 25% of PC employees reluctant to discuss workplace stress and burnout

New Delhi, March 20 (IANS) – One in four employees struggle to discuss mental health issues such as stress, burnout, anxiety, or depression at the workplace, according to a report by Great Place To Work India. The survey of over 18.5 lakh employees across 210 companies highlighted burnout as a major concern, affecting 56% of workers.

The report revealed a 2-point decline in overall satisfaction and a 3-point increase in burnout experiences. Yeshasvini Ramaswamy, CEO of Great Place To Work, India, emphasized the importance of addressing employee wellbeing and creating a transparent and supportive environment for those facing mental health challenges.

While industries like construction and retail lead in mental health support, the report noted a decline in areas such as professional growth, development, and effective management. The fear of judgement hinders one in four employees from speaking up about their mental health struggles, underscoring the need for a more open and encouraging work environment.

Despite over 80% of employees reporting a positive sense of community at work, younger workers aged 25 and below expressed the lowest sense of belonging. This highlights the need for organizations to prioritize mental health support and create inclusive workplaces for all employees.
