Growing numbers of employees feel the pressure of always on culture

Research from Canada Life stresses the importance of employers providing workforces with mental wellness assistance after 90% of employees state they want access to support.

It comes as the findings reveal over half of workers (54%) feel increased pressure to always be online for work – a jump of 17% since May 2020 when 46% stated they felt the burdens of presenteeism.


In particular, employees feel the pain with video meetings, with 51% of employees wanting shorter or fewer video meetings to aid wellness. 


As well as this, 54% of workers would like employers to plan mental wellness days to aid a healthy work-life balance. Fifty-nine percent of women who work from home have stated that this is something they would benefit from. Unsurprising as women who have children and whose partners earn more money do double the amount of housework and 41% more childcare than their spouses. Simultaneously, women who have children and whose partners earn less money still do 6% more housework and 22% more childcare.


Well known firms are starting to address the issue, with Barclays telling junior staff to work less at weekends and book more holidays.


Martin Blinder, Founder and CEO of Tictrac says:


Employees need to feel that they can switch off from work when they’re at home otherwise, they increase the risk of burnout. Creating a healthy work-life balance is essential to tackle the pressure of an ‘always-on’ culture.

“Whilst employers can partly support this with added flexibility, meeting-free days or by reducing video-call times, organizations must also be prepared to provide more comprehensive support that tackles mental health problems and keeps staff engaged at work”.
