Work stress: we have all experienced it at one time or another. Nowadays, we want a lot at once and expect the same from ourselves.The changes in the workfield are moving fast: from working in the office, to working from home and a combination of those. This has an effect on our energy sources and is increasingly causing stress and burn-outs. But why exactly? Where are the pitfalls? And what can we do about it? You can read that, and much more, in the Work Stress Data Report 2021.

The first Work Stress Data Report was published in November 2020. We already saw in this that we were in the danger zone at the time when it came to stress and burnout figures. Now we compare the figures for 2020 with those for 2021 to see how we are doing with stress at work. Do we still suffer from work stress, a poor work-life balance and low energy? Have there been any new energy guzzlers this year? What does this mean for organizations?

In this report we analyze the development of emotions, energy levels and stressors of employees. Have we recovered in 2021 from the peaks of stress we saw in 2020? We also zoom in on the most common causes of work stress: which factors give us stress or energy? And what are the differences between employees and managers in this regard?

We draw these conclusions based on our aggregated data from 200,000+ questions asked to employees and managers from more than 70 organizations in the Netherlands. We conclude with recommendations from our happiness experts and a proactive workload checklist (or online measurement) as a bonus.
