The Corona crisis has increased the stress of many employees. According to a survey, a large number of people are also affected in Germany. But they are elsewhere.

Berlin. Compared to large industrialized countries, German employees rarely feel stressed. This is the result of a survey by the consulting firm Gallup.

According to this, 40 percent of those surveyed in Germany stated that they had felt stress the day before. The average of the seven largest industrialized countries was 46 percent and Europe-wide 39 percent. According to the survey, tension is at its peak worldwide during the Corona crisis.

Short working hours and a stable social and health system

“In Germany we benefit from a combination of broad job security through short-time work and a stable social and health system,” says Gallup expert Marco Nink. The fact that many people can work from home also reduces stress. Because it stops traffic.

Many have gotten used to the home office. Therefore, according to the results, they want to go to work less often. The shortage of skilled workers also contributes to this. A good half think it is a good time to look for a new job. However, only 11 percent believe they will move on in the next 12 months. Europe-wide it is 14 percent.

“The corona pandemic has changed the situation permanently in favor of the employees,” said Nink. “The home office will remain and an important part of employer attractiveness.”
