More than half (52 percent) of full-time U.S. employees feel more anxious than they did a year ago, according to a new report.
Nearly two-thirds of U.S. workers are stressed all or most of the time at work because of the current political climate, the No. 1 stress trigger outside of work. A fear of losing their job to artificial intelligence or new technology was the biggest trigger for stress in the workplace.
Other high-ranking stressors include the pressure to master new skills quickly to keep up with changing job responsibilities, a concern for 52 percent of workers, and feeling underskilled for the job, which 42 percent felt was responsible for their workplace stress.
