Studies have been looking into the effect of stress and other psychosocial factors on employees’ well-being for decades. One of the first efforts to recognize the connection between workplace stress and well-being was the Whitehall Studies from 1967 to the mid-1980s. And studies continue to document the link between the two. A lot of the research points to lower job control and social support as the common factors for workplace stress. Employees in lower ranks face a significantly more demanding workload and thus, subsequently higher psychological pressure on the job. But over the last decade, the sudden exponential rise in workplace stress and anxiety indicates every worker-level is impacted, including those in higher ranks.
