Ever feel stress at work?

Silly question.

But the issue of stress in the workplace and how it can stifle productivity, damage morale and spark employee turnover is anything but silly.

In fact, those who find themselves having trouble keeping calm and carrying on at work are in the majority. More than half of workers said they are stressed at work on a day-to-day basis, and 60 percent said work-related pressure had increased in the past five years, according to a new survey by Menlo Park, Calif.–based staffing firm Accountemps.

Their concerns are hardly lost on executives: 54 percent of CFOs acknowledged their teams are stressed, and 55 percent said worker anxiety was on the rise. Employees polled cited heavy workloads and looming deadlines (33 percent), attaining work-life balance (22 percent), and unrealistic expectations of managers (22 percent) as top worries.
