A new study has found that 39% of UK employees have left a job due to unfavourable working conditions, with others experiencing poor wellbeing in the workplace leading to reductions in productivity, mental wellbeing and workplace harmony, according to UK-based accountancy charity CABA.
The research showed that women were most likely to leave a job due to unfavourable working conditions (43% vs 36% of men). An additional 20% of employees said that while they had not left, they did come close.
According to the study, as a result of poor wellbeing, 42% of employees said they’d taken more sick days, 63% of employees said they’d taken longer to get jobs done due to decreased productivity and 54% said they’d experienced confrontations with their colleagues.
Meanwhile, 58% said they’d experienced reduced mental wellbeing, such as suffering with stress, anxiety or depression, due to poor personal wellbeing at work. Additionally, 74% of employees said their concentration had been affected and 53% had seen poor results or performance.
