Catalyst - Workplace Stress
If you think work is getting more stressful, you're not imagining it. Since 1964, the average working week for white collar workers has gone up by 10 hours. In scenes reminiscent of Dickensian England, we're working harder, longer and with more job insecurity than ever before – and the cost is increasingly clear. Decades of research across hundreds of thousands of workers point to a full scale stress epidemic.
In this must watch episode of Catalyst, we travel to London to meet the world experts and tackle one of the biggest issues of our time – what is rising workplace stress really doing to us? Stress in the UK workplace has now outstripped backache as the number one cause of lost productivity due to sick leave.
But can a radical intervention in the UK show us how to stop workplace stress in its tracks? And, we ask the question on every overworked, time poor, family person's lips – is it too late to turn this stress juggernaut around? Jonica Newby goes undercover with the London Police Force to find out what the City of London Police Force is doing to lower the heart rate of their bobbies on the beat.
