Almost a third of millennials are most stressed about the office culture and environment at work.’
With the popularity of the #quietquitting trend growing over recent months – see its 197 million views on TikTok – we got professionals around the UK opening up to their biggest working stresses, and it doesn’t look great for employers attempting to combat this recent culture growth.
Commercial interior design company, Diamond Interiors asked the nation, and the data reveals that almost a third of millennials stress the most about their office environment and the culture that comes with it. The stress of office politics alone made up 17% of this overall tension.
This concern around office politics is most prominent in women, who worry more about this compared to men. Are we simply sick of office gossip?
Speaking of men, they appeared to be more occupied with unsupportive management, with 22% of them saying it was what brings them the most stress. This is significantly higher than the women with only 13% of their stress coming from the same issue.
Aside from all the stress around the environment, politics and culture inside the office, a third of millennials primarily worry about the long office hours more than anything else.
The results speak for themselves: if you want to combat this growing trend, you’ve got to take care of your office environment in some respect. Whether that means clamping down on office gossip or switching up the way you work, it could mean all the difference between retaining your best staff and having them fade into the background just doing the bare minimum.
