Workplace stress has many causes, and you can’t avoid them all. But here’s something to consider: a survey suggests you’re more likely to feel stressed in a large company than a small one.

Business Insider reports on a survey of 20,000 people across 95 countries by serviced office firm Regus. The study found that in companies with less than 40 employees, 54 per cent of workers had high levels of stress. In companies with more than 250, that figure rose to 61 per cent.

The fact that more than half of us feel stressed in our jobs regardless of company size is disturbing. But if you are feeling the pressure, seems like moving to a smaller employer could help.
