Stress is one common issue faced by almost every employee.
Nearly half of the employees in India suffer from some kind of stress, according to the findings of the latest survey by Optum.
Another survey, conducted by 1to1help.net, showed that the proportion of workers at high risk of suicide due to unmanaged stress has grown to 8% of all counseling cases in 2018 from 2–4% two years ago.
