The changes in our environment are going faster than ever. This has been the case for a while, of course, but since the outbreak of Covid-19, we have been constantly navigating between a state of mind of uncertainty and security, threat-oriented and vigilance, and loneliness and connection. To cope with these changes, we draw on our physical and mental energy resources.

But how quickly do they run out? Can we replenish our energy quickly enough before we use up our reserves? And how does this process affect our work and well-being?

Many recent studies by, among others, TNO, CNV and our own 2DAYSMOOD Crisis monitor show that we are in the danger zone when it comes to burnouts. We are dealing with higher rates of work stress, overtime, mental complaints and absenteeism, and lower rates of energy and job satisfaction.

In this Work Stress Data Report, we look at the development of emotions throughout the crisis. Are there many peaks and troughs, or is there a steady trend of stress? We also look at the causes of work stress: which factors give us stress or energy? And how do stress, work pressure and working from home relate to each other?

We draw conclusions based on our data from more than 3,500 weekly surveys of employees and managers in the Netherlands. We conclude with recommendations to maximize energy sources and tackle stressors, as well as a practical checklist to provide insight into and ease the experience of work pressure.
