Die Covid-19 pandemic has caused the world unfathomable stress, maar 'n onlangse opname onder werkers dui aan waar die virus regtig druk toegepas het.

Die opname, conducted by AP-NORC and SAP, gevra 1,015 full-time and part-time employees what their views were on the impact of the virus on the workplace.
Die resultate are mostly what you would think, but there were a few surprises.A quarter of the people we spoke with said they were considering quitting their job,” Marjorie Connelly, senior fellow for The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, aan CNN gesê.
Of those people, they tended to be younger, they tended to be people whose household income was lower.
    Connelly said that there was not a big difference between those working remotely and those who had to leave the home to work. But employees who are still going into a workplace were more likely to say they experienced a higher amount of stress, sy het gese.
    Daarbenewens, the poll found that 28% of those surveyed have cut back on their hours, en 20% have had to take leave.

    Oor 80% had a positive view of employer’s response

    One of the surprises, Connelly said, was the amount of people who said their employer was doing an adequate or better job of handling the pandemic. “We were a little surprised that people were as positive about their employers,” sy het gese.
    Oor 80% of those surveyed had a positive outlook on how their employer had handled the pandemic.
    Parents with children who are unable to physically attend a school or daycare center are among those experiencing high levels of stress. Sixty-eight percent of those working parents called it a significant source of stress. Thirty-four percent said it was impacting how much work they were getting done.
    The survey found that more than half of the schools or daycare centers attended by non-White workerschildren are closed, compared with about a quarter of White workers.

    Non-White workers feeling more stress

    Non-White workers, Hispanic and Black, were more likely to say that the pandemic is a great source of stress. Sixty-two percent of Black workers said it was a major source of stress, saam met 44% of Hispanic workers. That compares with 39% of White workers, according to the survey.
      There was not a significant difference in answers between men and women in terms of work, but there was a difference in how they viewed the pandemic.
      We did find in general that women were more likely to say that the pandemic was a source of stress, not that they were more likely to take leave or considering quitting, maar 50% of women said the pandemic was a source of stress over one-third of men,” Connelly said.
